Narrative:
DH.60X [Cirrus II] sold to Dept of National Defence, Canada with C of A 1425 issued 23.5.28; delivered to DH Canada at Mount Dennis 13.6.28. Registered as G-CALD [C of R 412] 14.6.28 to Dept of National Defense and issued 7.7.28 to Halifax Aero Club (as a floatplane).

Capsized when Engine cut on take-off from Halifax Bay, and aircraft capsized in forced landing. Severely damaged during salvage near Green Bank, Nova Scotia 4.7.29. Registration cancelled 5.7.29.

*Note: Both DeHavilland and Air Registration Board have this Moth as being G-CAKX with c/n 582 as G-CALD. Dept of National Defense records also initially indicated same position but later amended - true position uncertain, so it is not clear which aircraft is G-CALD and which is G-CAKX
