HISTORY > THE ACCIDENT
A crash to remember
August 20, 1960, while CF-CPA was performing aerial photography, it suffered from fuel starvation and belly-landed 100 miles north of Schefferville, Quebec.
Because of the extraordinary skills of the pilots, no one was injured and the plane sustained only minimal damage.
Due to the extreme wilderness of the landing area, the owner of the aircraft did not feel it was worth recovering the aircraft and it has remained in the tundra these last 46 plus years.
