Royal Canadian Air Force Canso A 11007
This is the February 8, 1945 crash site of a RCAF Canso/Catalina. It’s near Radar Hill in the Pacific Rim National Park between Ucluelet and Tofino. There’s a detailed story by Dirk Septer of the crash (at this link).
The trail* to the crash site winds through this abandoned building:
* as of June 2016, the ‘trail’ from the abandoned building to the crash site was extremely muddy; it’s possible to sink your foot 6 to 12 inches into the mud—I’d wear tall rubber boots with good tread if I were going today…
