Summer 2024 Report

First up, a short overview of the increasing number of Norseman in Joe McBryan’s collection;

In Yellowknife Joe has his personal Mk V, serial N29-29, CF-SAN floatplane although the latest news indicates it has yet to fly this season. Also in the hangar are a dismantled Mk VI, serial 625, CF-FQX and the fuselage of Mk VI, serial 242, CF-NJK. Down in Red Deer, Alberta we have the latest acquisition of Mk V, serial N29-23, N45TG as mentioned in the previous post. Another Mk V, serial N29-31, CF-ECD is in pieces sitting beside an unidentified Norseman that apparently came from Argentina. Lastly are a couple Mk VI fuselage airframes, serial 564, CF-NJV and what is believed to be serial 421 last registered as CF-GOB.

Going eastward in Canada, there are a few exciting Norseman events on the horizon to look forward to;

Red Lake will have the annual festival on July 12, 13, and 14 followed by Aviation Day at the Red Lake airport on July 20.

Final plans are coming together to have CF-JIN back in the air! Originally a Mk IV model for the RCAF this beautiful restored Norseman now wears its military colours again and how appropriate with 2024 being the 100th anniversary of the RCAF.

The legendary Norseman lives on to the extent that CF-JEC is returning to commercial service next year! The new owners, Air Mont-Laurier plan to operate this metalized fuselage Mk VI privately for 2024 and it will remain in Quebec after the recent purchase.

With the sales of N45TG and CF-JEC hopefully down in the USA a new buyer can be found for N164UC. The price has been reduced to $195,000 USD and is now open to offers. Search up the details at
