PEOPLE, PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU E-MAIL ME
I know that there is no 10727 in this list.  There never was a 10727.  The top of this page says "Canadian Armed Forces".  The page deals with the re-numbered Canadian Forces Argus, 1970 and later.  RCAF serial 20727 crashed in 1965, and there never was a 10727.  Never.  Trust me.

There is a seperate detailed list for the RCAF era Argus, and 20727 is there.  I promise.
