CF-THG - British Columbia Aviation Museum (BCAM) - April 2005 to current

Purchased from the British Columbia Institute of Technology and restored to its Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) 'White Top' livery with fleet number 625. Taken at Victoria International Airport, North Saanich, British Columbia, Canada 13 May 2019 with the paintwork starting to look tatty after being stored outside during the winter for the first time since its restoration.

This is because the hangar is now occupied with the sections of Avro Lancaster B.X FM104, which is under restoration to fly again.
