This Bolingbroke was manufactured by Fairchild Aircraft Limited for the RCAF in June 1942, and was briefly listed with No. 1 Training Command in Toronto before going to No. 2 Training Command in Winnipeg in July.  In June 1944, it was put in storage and in September 1945 it was sold as war surplus to George A. Maude.  Maude moved the Bolingbroke to his property on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.  In 1962, he agreed to donate the aircraft to the RCAF.  A Calgary company disassembled and trucked it to Alberta for restoration in May 1963.  It was finished in the markings of an aircraft of No. 8 Squadron RCAF, which had used Bolingbroke IVs operationally on both coasts from 1941 to 1943.  The aircraft was transported to Rockcliffe airport and officially handed over to the RCAF by Maude in an Air Force Day ceremony on 6 June 1964.  The aircraft was later transferred to the Museum.
