The museum’s Labrador was one of the last three to fly in Canada. It was put into service in 1965 and initially served with 450 Squadron in Uplands (Ottawa). This Labrador was originally designated as ‘Voyageur,’ a helicopter specifically designed for army transport. It was gradually modified with Search and Rescue equipment and was later officially re-designated as ‘Labrador.’ It served 424 Squadron in Trenton before its retirement in 2004.
