Eye In The Sky said:I remember watching SAR Techs jump out of these at CFB Summerside when I was in Grade 1; that would have been 1975-76 - a testament to how long the Buffalo served Canada and Canadians for.
457 is the aircraft featured on the RCAF website as well. http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/en/aircraft-current/cc-115.page
I learned aircraft drills for the Buffalo on my Basic Para serial in 1968. At that time there was a Buffalo squadron in a tactical transport role in 10 TAG in FMC.
