    Default 10 February 1944 - RCAF St. Hubert crash landing

    I've been searching but simply cannot find the specific details (aircraft type, registry, etc) for the 10 Feb 44 crash landing near RCAF station St.Hubert. Only a short newspaper clipping mentionning the info below:

    Pilot was F/O Frank Ross
    Pax:
    G/C Marcel Dubuc (CO 13 SFTS)
    W/C Raymond Muir
    Sgt Gordon Schwartz
    Possibly more pax.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Accident report can be found here. Some of the images are not very clear.
