Flight 6

Top of page

Every night, Trans-Canada Airlines Flight 6 crosses Canada from Vancouver to Montréal with its load of blue and yellow air mail bags, playing an important role in Canadian life and business. Three times a week, cargoes bound eventually for London, Moscow, Lisbon and Paris are flown to Scotland. Into a thirty-ton Lancaster go the letters and parcels for prisoners of war and diplomats, for business executives and soldiers. When decisions are vital and information must travel quickly, Canada's air service proves its value.
