CF-GVC is a Stinson 108, Serial #594 and manufactured September 4, 1946.
I have a copy of the application for the C of A and the registration of this aircraft as well as the bill of sale from Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation to American Aviation Corporation, Minneapolis, in the amount of $5,270.00. This has been acknowledged by “Estelle Stinson” Notary.
On September 6, 1946 CF-GVC was sold to Lorin E. Ovemeland in Bismarck, ND. I have all the log books for this aircraft, the owners were in Bismarck, Jamestown, and Washburn, ND until September 25, 1973 when #594 was imported into Canada. It went to Boissevain, Russell, Regina, Brandon, and Virden then we met April 8, 1992 at Maple Leaf Aviation in Brandon, MB.
To make a long story short, a complete disassemble and rebuild of the airframe and engine, brakes, radios and mags (bottom end of engine zero time in May 2004 at Aero Recip) - on condition June 2005.
The Stinson 108 is a direct descendent of the L5 in WWII.
I have the original “Owners Operating Manual” now called the P.O.H.
