"The historic aircraft (a Canadian-built JN-4(Can) Canuck used by the Regina-based Aerial Service Co. in 1919-20. The "AAA" in the registration indicates that it was the first aircraft formally registered in Canada, though it of course was not the first aircraft used or flown in the country. It's shown in its hangar at the company's little "air harbour" on the site of present day Cameron Street and Hill Avenue in south Regina."

"Aircraft from M&C Aviation along the waterfront in downtown Prince Albert in the early summer of 1944. This is from a Kodachrome slide by Everett Baker. I found it in the collection of the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society, with whose permission it is used. Can anybody identity the individual aircraft? M&C Aviation, incidentally, was sold by its owner to the Saskatchewan government in 1947 and became the nucleus of Saskatchewan Government Airways, which in 1965 was privatized to become Norcanair."

"A group of aircraft (they're Canadian-built Curtiss JN-4(Can) Canucks at the site of Canada's first licensed "air harbour" -- the little airfield run by pioneering Regina aviator Roland Groome and his partners in the short-lived Aerial Service Co. around 1919 or 1920. This airfield as located in south Regina's Lakeview area, more or less on the site of what's now St. Pius X school's playground on Cameron Street just south of Hill Avenue.

"DHC Twin Otter CF-AIV in the colours of Transair and its subsidiary Midwest Airlines, but also wearing the name amidships of Norcanair, which dry-leased this aircraft in 1972-73 to operate a Regina-Saskatoon-Prince Albert route under contract to Transair, which held the route licence. Norcanair later took over the route itself and operated five F-27s on it. Photo taken at the Regina Airport by Will Chabun."
