C. Mk. IX

 

 

Model 33

 

 

 

 

 

first date: 2 July 1946 - Received on loan from RAF

 

Ex USN RY3,  their serial 90021, RAF Liberator C. Mk. IX.  First "Rockcliffe Ice Wagon".  Used for measurement of natural icing conditions and development of electrical de-icing systems.  Scientific equipment installed and operated by the National Research Council.  The wing de-icing system developed using this aircraft would later be used on the CF-100.  Generally referred to as "Liberator RY3" in RCAF documents.  Operated by Test & Development Establishment at RCAF Rockcliffe, Ontario on behalf on National Research Council.  Visited Winnipeg, Manitoba, from Rockcliffe, on 19 November 1946.  Also operated from Vancouver, Goose Bay, and Gander.  Low serviceability, due in part to lack of available spares.  Order from the UK to scrap this aircraft in Canada received in January 1949, when replacement North Star became available.  Last operational Liberator in Canada, probably last operational RY3 in the world.

This serial is reported in "RCAF Squadron and Aircraft", but not in Griffin's book.  I can't find an RCAF Aircraft Record Card for it.  Maybe on loan from RAF?  Reported with No. 120 (BR) Squadron at RCAF Station Coal Harbour, BC in 1943/44.
