During WWII, our aircraft carried RCAF serial number 4456 and served as an Elementary Flight Training aircraft at three different bases: Central Flying School, Trenton Ontario, #22 Elementary Flying School, L'Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec, and #11 Elementary Flying School, Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec. In RCAF service from October 1940 through September 1943 it was known as a Finch II. Like all good primary trainers, it was rugged, inexpensive, and saw hard service.
The Comanche Peak Sponsor Group was created in 2021 specifically to reactivate the CAF's 1940 Fleet Model 16B biplane. This aircraft was a war-time trainer in the Royal Canadian Air Force and known there as a Finch II. Our Vision is to use the this aircraft to tell the story of the more than 8,800 American volunteers who trained and served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and Royal Air Force before the U.S. entered the War.
