437 Squadron Museum Display Panel - by C. Grant Gulland
The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is in the process of developing a new display depicting the history or Transport Command and specifically 437 Transport Squadron.
The display was prompted by the acquisition of C-47 aircraft RCAF id # FZ 692. She took part in the mass paratroop drop D Day as part of RAF 233 Squadron and was later transferred to the RCAF. The mural is painted on 1/4" masonite and will be attached to the left hand side of the bulkhead that stands between the cockpit and cabin of the 737 fuselage section that is on show at the museum.
The mural shows the four different transport aircraft that 437 has flown throughout its 70-plus years of operation.
There is a great deal of work still to come on the project but things are happening in small steps. Bill McBride is the lead on the project. I believe he has obtained a complete cabin interior that is yet to be installed. The exterior of the cockpit is also in the process of being refurbished however Covid 19 has slowed things down considerably.
