NNA - by Sam Cole

This is one of my very earliest pieces, (1985), and one of my most successful. I published 200 prints of it which sell well today. I flew this C-47A for Austin Airways from 1980 till 1986. Sadly it was wrecked in 1987 at Sachigo Lake north of Red Lake ON. The aircraft was a war veteran having served with the RAF during the invasion of Europe and was transferred to the RCAF after the war. It was refurbished at Canadair in Montreal in 1953 and served with the RCAF until 1975 then it was bought by Austin Airways and served with them till it crashed.
