Détails:
The Canso departed Moncton on a ferry flight to Iceland, for use by 162 Squadron. It came down on frozen Morhiban Lake, Labrador due to engine problems. It was destroyed by a post crash fire. Two of the nine occupants were injured.
The survivors were flown out by two RCAF Norseman aircraft, but one crashed on take-off. Seven were then rescued by a USCG helicopter out of Goose Bay.
