1. RCAF Dakota Mk IV

The RCAF acquired its first examples of the Dakota in 1943 and they were used in various theatres including in Canada, Europe and South East Asia. After World War II many RCAF Dakotas were passed on to Trans Canada Airlines. The Dakota was the main RCAF post war transport until the arrival of more modern types like the CC-119 Boxcar, Northstar and Cosmo. In addition to the transport role the post war Dakota was operated in other roles including Search and Rescue, target tug and as airborne navigation trainer for CF-104 Starfighter pilots.

The depicted Dakota Mk IV 'KN269' (built by Douglas Corp. Oklahoma City, #27202) was delivered to USAAF on 23 January 1945 (C-47B-20-DK, serial number 43-49941), to RAF on 28 January 1945. Struck off RAF books on 22 April 1946.
Taken on strength by RCAF on 20 June 1946, struck off in 1967.

To Canadian civil register as CF-PIK, registered to Arctic Air of Edmonton, Alberta in 1976. Later C-FPIK, with Chaperal Charters of Dorval, PQ, this registration cancelled on 12 October 1982. To Air Inuit of Kuujjuaq, PQ, this registration cancelled on 22 March 1984, when aircraft was exported. To US civil register as N53NA, then N133FS with GD Aircraft of Atherton, California by 2006.
