I read with interest your article about the visit to the museum and the various aircraft exhibited there. You may not have realized that the Douglas C-47 whose nose graces the front of the building, and its tail the back, also had a fascinating history.

At the moment it bears the colours of Eastern Provincial Airlines, but its early life was as a WWII transport plane in the Philippines and then it carried barrels of uranium (yellowcake) to supply the US during the Cold War. And passengers - sometimes at the same time as the yellowcake.
If you are interested in a short article for your newsletter, I would be happy to provide that. The plane was the lifeline for a small community in Northern Saskatchewan and was much loved.
