This is a stripped and mounted C-47 at the airforce base.

From the file, go to the placematk at:
"C-47, Winnipeg, Manitoba" lat=49.8938533863, lon=-97.2493717279

Up until 1990 or so there were still 2 C-47s flying northern Manitoba, but they were sold and ended up in Africa doing famine relief flights out of Kenya. These workhorses are still humping cargo somewhere over there. One had a nice painted dragon on it's tail.

I must correct myself, it was C-46s that were flying to Northern Manitoba.

I found this site (http://members.shaw.ca/navion/cgixz.htm) with pictures - Bill Fraser, the site author accompanied them to Africa where they were used for famine relief work.
