Does anyone recognise these tailfeathers??

Around about 1940, seaplane base in Western Canada, biplane, tubing & fabric and a few of me ancestors going bush for a meeting.

Any theories on the A/C type....

bluenose,

It's also a bi-plane. That and the short rear fuselage leads me to suggest a cabin Waco of some type.

WACO, Beauty!

Thanks heaps, team. This one was gone before I started pumping avgas into Beavers at this dock.

Never worked out where he took my Granny & Gt Granny.

Cheers, BN
