Aircraft Movements & Photo Update

On 26-Sep-1971 a DHC-6-100 CF-CSF, operated by Standard Developments suffered a power loss after take-off from Edmonton-Municipal Airport necessitating a forced landing. The aircraft was put down rather skillfully in the Athlone neighbourhood which lies under the departure path from the Municipal Airport's runway 30.  As can be seen in the photograph below, there was little (if any) damage to the aircraft, and it was returned to service shortly thereafter....and no, I'm not sure how it was returned back to the airport.
MSN 75 remains operational in Israel forty-two years after this incident.
The photo below was taken by the Edmonton Journal's John Denniston who was diverted from an advertising shoot to capture the incident scene. It subsequently won the Canadian Press image of the month award for the photographer. John's website is at:

As had been expected, the Regent Series 400 C-GLVA was received amphibious floats, and looks very nice indeed. Thanks to Tim for the photograph.
