Superior Airways / Severn Enterprise operation from the late 1960's to 1974.
Attached photo is from Neil Aird's website.
Photographer information is on the photo border.
DeHavilland Beaver CF-ORC is a Beaver that I never saw operated. I have tried to
find information about this aircraft but no one seems to remember it.
The photo was taken Nov 04, 1967 in Toronto. The aircraft has Superior Airways Ltd.
Ft. William. Ont. painted on the fuselage.
There are a few things about the aircraft that are different from the rest of Mr. Wieben's
Beavers. There is no bottom cowl air intake scoop in the photo. It has the air intake
scoop on the right upper cowling. All the rest of the Beavers in the fleet had the air
intake at the bottom of the lower cowl.
The paint scheme is a bit different from the normal red, white, and black colours.
It's missing the narrow black lines that are above and below the larger black stripe.
Because these additional black lines are missing, this aircraft "might not" have been
painted in the Superior Airways hangar. Aircraft that were painted in the Superior
Airways hangar always had all the required paint scheme details when finished.
Because the photo was taken in November in Toronto it would have to have been taken
after float season.
