Noorduyn Norseman -- a northern workhorse

The Noorduyn Norseman was designed by a Dutchman named "Bob" Noorduyn, who had once worked in England for Sopwith.

With a partner, he started Norseman Aircraft in Montreal in 1934. They produced utility cargo planes suitable for use in the Far North.

This plane was used by the RCAF and then by Associated Airways. The name inscribed on the side is Chuck MacLaren. A long time volunteer for the Alberta Aviation Museum, he spent hundreds of hours on its restoration.
