1950: Nov 08, RCAF 9598, No. 442 Squadron Sea Island BC, later 402 Squadron Stevenson Field Manitoba
1955: Oct 15, dead-stick landing, Sea Island BC:
A F/O (which will remain nameless for now) of 443 Squadron was seen doing aerobatics and some air to air combat with a Vampire over Abbotsford. His engine overheated, blew its coolant and seized. Prior to start-up he had not flicked his Radiator Coolant Switch from Manual to Auto.

He dead-sticked into the Abbottsford airport. That was his last flight with the RCAF as his commanding officer fired him.

RCAF 9598 was not repaired, but dismantled, engine removed and shipped to Carberry for storage.
1955: stored outside, Carberry, Manitoba Canada
1960: Oct 20, SOS
1960: James Defuria Intercontinental Airways - rep. as N6313T (#2) later N6353T but never applied
