• CF-PJH Georgian Bay Airways, Parry Sound, ON. Regd 07-Jun-1963

Accident: Kam River Ontario.48°32’N 89°16’W. 20-Jun-1963. At the start of a ferry flight, the pilot, Melville R. Bradley, failed to discontinue a take off after knowingly being in difficulties because of rough water caused by a fast water current and eddies. The pilot while taking off close to the left shore line allowed the current to yaw the aircraft to the left. As a consequence the left wing struck the shore and nosed the aircraft into the bank. The damage to the aircraft was substantial and the pilot received minor injuries.
