The engines are being prepared for ground running prior to taxying trials.

Note the large grey blanking plate at the front end of the Rolls-Royce Dart engine where the Water Methanol Control Unit (WMCU) would normally be installed.

TCA and then Air Canada chose to operate their Darts without the benefit of a wet power boost but the Low Torque Switch still needed to be fitted to provide an auto-feathering facility.

Also note the red marks lined up on the propeller blades and spinner denoting the correct 'ground fine pitch' position for starting up the engine.

Standing by the nose is John Davidson who was the President of the museum at that time.

A brave man for not wearing ear defenders! The museum building (Hangar T-2) is on the right and was formerly used for maintenance by Air Canada and before that TCA.

Purchased from Beaver Enterprises Ltd, preserved and restored as CF-THS. Taken inside the cabin at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 13 November 2012.

This view shows the condition of the 1960s curtains with the distinctive maple leaf emblem.

Some of it has faded with prolonged exposure to the sun but the aim is to use as much original material as possible.

This view shows the condition of the 1960s sash material showing the very distinctive maple leaf motif.

The condition of this and others like it is very good and will be re-used in the restoration.

The aim is to use as much original material as possible.

Purchased from Beaver Enterprises Ltd, preserved and restored as CF-THS. Taken inside the museum at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 29 May 2014 with two Stewardesses in 1970s period Air Canada uniforms preparing to welcome 'passengers' on board for a very unique event.

A short comedy play was performed by Shawna Dempsey (in red) with Lorri Millan (in white) assisting with the boarding.

There were three sessions on two evenings and every seat on board was taken.

Multi-colour mood lighting, sound effects and even turbulence was produced to enhance the brilliant performance.

A great use of an old airliner!

Purchased from Beaver Enterprises Ltd, preserved and restored as CF-THS. Taken inside the cabin at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 29 May 2014 with Guy La Casse waiting patiently for the comedy play to begin.

Guy is a well renowned local modeller who produces wonderful scale aircraft carved out of solid wood and exquisitely painted to represent historic Canadian aircraft types including, of course, the Viscount.

A lot of his work including dioramas are exhibited in the museum and certainly enhances the museums appeal.

He also models trains and ships, again to exacting scale and perfection.

Taken inside the cabin at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 29 May 2014 with 'Stewardess' Shawna Dempsey in 1970s period Air Canada uniform performing a solo act during the short comedy play which was all about a weird collection of passengers, which I guess applies to any flight on any day!

There were three sessions on two evenings and every seat on board was taken.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this unique event which Shawna and Lorri plan to perform on board other suitable aircraft around Canada.

Purchased from Beaver Enterprises Ltd, preserved and restored as CF-THS. Taken at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 29 May 2014.

This is the replica boarding pass which allowed you to attend the comedy play.

The flight number is the year represented in the play, i.e. 1979, with this session starting at 20:00.

There was one session at 19:00 and another at 21:00 which was repeated on Friday 30 May, again to full houses or cabins!

No smoking was allowed on board, which was certainly not the case in 1979, but Shawna did hand out free salted peanuts!

One of the ficticious passengers, a small child was supposedly allergic to peanuts.

Some of the other ficticious passengers included a highjacker, a nun and a newly married couple.

The rest of us joined in at appropriate moments including screaming!

I just couldn't stop laughing and missed a few of the punch lines! Shawna, can I have a transcript please?

Thank you for a very enjoyable evening!

Museum re-named from Western Canada Aviation Museum (WCAM). Taken inside the museum at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada 10 March 2015.

A view of the No.1 Rolls-Royce Dart RDa3 Mark 506 engine with the 'clamshell' nacelle cowlings open.

Robert is a volunteer at the museum and had opened up the cowlings to carry out an inventory of which engine serial numbers were installed and their general condition.

This engine is S/N 3046 (TCA # 61A-7KA) and had been transferred from CF-TIE (C/N 385) No.4 position after the aircraft flew in from Gimli and only had 497 hours remaining on its overhaul life.

Easy access to the Dart engine for maintenance was one of the major bonuses for the ground engineers.
