WWII Northrop Nomad Aircraft recovery operations started in Lake Muskoka
The Royal Canadian Air Force has started recovery operations to raise a WWII Northrop Nomad Aircraft from the depths of Lake Muskoka. The operations will continue until November 3rd. The plane crashed in 1940. Bracebridge is serving as the primary staging location for the operation and imagery from the operation, including underwater video, will be available daily at www.forcesimages.ca. Two pieces of the wreckage are expected to be brought to the surface on Tuesday. The recovered ensemble of the Nomad wreckage will be displayed on a flatbed trailer on November 3rd before being taken to the National Air Force Museum of Canada in Trenton. A small ceremony will mark the end of the recovery operation and handover of the Nomad from the RCAF to the National Air Force Museum of Canada.
