Several thousands of single-seat Curtiss P-40s were built up to the end of 1944 and a number of P-40N Warhawks are still airworthy. One, N1197N is owned by W . Bridges Jnr. of Realtor, Texas.
Окончание Первой Мировой сократило деловую активность в военном авиастроении, но некоторые проекты, как, например, французский тяжелый бомбардировщик F.60 "Голиаф", имели настолько значительный потенциал, что их без труда адаптировали для использования в коммерческих целях. Один из первых F.60 с моторами Salmson 9Z
The prototype Farman F.60 Goliath, a 2-motor biplane which served for many years in both military and civil guises. As a transport the F.60 could carry 12 passengers , power being two 260-h .p. Salmson C.M.9 watercooled radials - later versions had Gnome-Rhone, Jupiter or Lorraine radials. Span 87 ft., length 48 ft. 5 in .
The de Havilland DHC·3 Otter has now been in series production for over four years and has gained a reputation as a reliable and rugged general utility (13-passenger) transport. The first prototype (CF-DYK-X) was initially airborne on 12th December 1951. To investigate floatplane flight characteristics the second prototype (CF-GCV-X) (illustrated), was fitted with a straight-edged fin and strake, plus a ventral strake. This was discarded in favour of the now familiar curved fin and extension.

This was discarded in favour of the now familiar curved fin and extension - as CF-HXY (photo) - which also has the now obsolete curved ventral fin.
Late production R.A.F. Siskin Mark IIIa
The sole A. W. Siskin of the R.C.A.F. This was a Mark III. Mr. McNulty points out that the serial "10" on the rear fuselage illustrates the first occasion on which the numeral system of the R.C.A.F. was employed (from 1930 onwards). Previously the system had been two letters, from " AA" to "ZZ'. The unique Canadain Siskin Mk. III may have been ex-R.A.F. J7759. Note how the older Mk.III's extended tailskid raised the tail, thus giving better forward vision for taxi-ing.
A rare Percival Proctor 3 sporting U.S. markings and an R.A.F. serial HM300 was photographed by Harold G. Martin in the U.S.A. in 1945 .
George Fuller of Montreal has discovered a photograph of an Avro Type 594 Avian powered by a Genet radial . This Canadian Genet Avian 2-seater of the early 1930s was registered CF-CAR. This has a 1957 echo in that an ex-A.N.A. DC-3 recently converted by Timmins Aviation, Montreal, with retractable wheel /ski u/c. and Arctic colours is now CF-CAR.
