Hugh MacCallum is looking for some help -
“I am trying to find the registration letters for 2 aircraft (photoes below) that I photographed 22 March 1977 parked on the ramp at CYHD / Dryden, Ontario.
Please refer to my URL www.hughmaccallum.ca/gallery3/index.html (page 2, pictures 12 and 13)
The first is a de Havilland DOVE, which I thought was owned by AirDale.
The second a Saunders ST-27 that was owned by ON AIR LIMITED in 1977.
I am unable to find any reference to these 2 carriers or any data bases for either carrier regarding defunct status? My photograph notes respectively said CF-ED and CF-MEW; however upon close inspection with magnifying glass & stronger eye glasses they are not correct???
I and Ken Kalynuk (CYWG) have been struggling with these identifications for 2 years +/- !!!! Your assistance (would be) very much appreciated.
Thank you, Hugh MacCallum
