Anson msn's

 

 Problem Aircraft

 1. CF-AMD Lancaster.

The only source that we can find for this registration is the statement "Even as they tried to get KB-976 a Certificate of Airworthiness, under registration CF-AMD, so it could be flown for exhibition, (CF-AMC was on our 1909 Curtis Flyer), Ernie Johnson’s interest ..." in Lynn Garrison's story at http://www.timefadesaway.co.uk/strathallan/kb976/kb_976_2.html 

Pro:  CF-AMC was indeed the 1909 Curtiss Flyer (1966-1967).

Contra:  There is no known DoT file for Lancaster CF-AMD. In the file for CF-TQC (its subsequent civil registration) there is no correspondence prior to 1969, other than the various Bills of Sale.  And on all these Bills of Sale, up to, and including, that dated 20 Nov 1969, the aircraft is always identified as KB976.  The marks CF-TQC were allotted 29 Dec 1969.

Conclusion: The jury is still out!.

Anson msn's

Note that Anson msn’s are unreliable.  First of all, not all the manufacturer’s msn’s are known.  Secondly, the often quoted “msn”s (particularly those in the BRC and BRU series) are actually section serial numbers.  The Mk V Anson fuselage was assembled from five sections (A to E), manufactured by Cockshutt Moulded Aircraft Ltd (BRC series) and Universal Moulded Products Corp (BRU series).  Even though these identifications are not true msn’s, they are repeated here, but in square brackets.
