Partial Recovery of Model 10A in Canada
« on: August 03, 2022, 11:00:11 AM »

I was watching an episode of "Ice Pilots" and learned of their recovery of the tail section of an Electra Model 10A near Yellowknife.
This is the link to the entire episode.  The Electra story arc starts at 21:42. History of the aircraft and circumstances of its loss are included.

That was an interesting episode. They also recovered a main landing strut of the earlier Electra type with the large gear mechanism (as I recall).
