Buffalo 115461 (Buffalo 461) was shot down over Syria on 09 August 1974 resulting in the deaths of nine Canadians. A replica is being restored in Hamilton - but there does not appear to be any clear photos of 461 before. Does anyone have a photo or slide please. A clear photo would help the restoration team.

http://www.comoxairforcemuseum.ca/ has an exhibit dedicated to this incident.  They have an extensive collection of photos and one of the best aviation libraries as well. I suspect they could get you a photo and I will mention the replica project at the next Executive meeting.  Actually....  I'll look for a photo seeing as I will be in the museum on Thursday.

Anybody that has been in the field knows
that what CFHQ specifications say the plane should look like
and
what the planes markings in field really are
are not always the same.

Thank you DND Archives for finding the two pictures
- which are 461 as one can read on the tail of both pictures

Anyone wanting an enlarged picture please Email me at

I only found newspaper clips.  Poor quality.  You have done much better.  Another source could be the museum in Trenton and the historian at 424 Sqn.  2 AMU used to have a mural of 461. I am told it was saved and could be either at the new AMU or the Museum.  Good Luck!!!  Does your Replica Project have a website?

Not my project really - they are doing a super job -there was NO pictures till now of 461
working from "official specifications 'which might or might not have been 'actual case'

Official site is
