Following the photo of CF-TCC in NetLetter nr 1333, Jim Bruce has sent us more photos of CF-TCC at Air Canada, Maintenance & Overhaul Base, Dorval 1962.
They’re all from the M&O Base at Dorval (inside and outside the huge hangar) and tie in with Alan Hunt being in charge of the restoration of the Lockheed 10A CF-TCC. Interesting to note that he rudder pedals shown in the instrument panel photo are labeled Cessna!
The ship looks so small in this vast hangar used to housing DC-8s, Super Connies, and Vanguards. In the view from behind TCC looking towards the open door, you can see a Vanguard tail in he background. In the exterior shot of TCC, the a/c in the background is of course a DC-8 both in front of the hangar.
Ken Starnes sent us a copy of the booklet Air Canada Maintenance Base at Dorval, and here we have a photo from it.
Caption was "To ensure maintenance of the highest possible standards, technical personnel employed in the hangars and various shops ore given extensive and continuing classroom and on-the-job training."
Starting from the left: Del Bougeois, Instructor; with Bob Cofell, Bud Sansom, Bud Clinch JR, and Urbino Francisco. I believe they were all junior CAT 1 Mechanics at the time, I knew all these people.
