I first "met' the Bristol Freighter when it was flying in Maritime
Central  Airways=  they were flying charter work for the DEW line
and altho it was a freighter, a few web seats were in the back when I
flew out of N Labrador to Goose Bay. Altho it was late Aug. I still
remember the  snow and cold air blowing in around the front doors.
Later I saw them often with Air Canada-   where the following story
came from  >

  Lga  twr.     did you build it yourself??
