Several years ago, Henry Tenby started a one-man effort communicating with Air Canada, the NFB, and the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology, with the purpose of digitizing the TCA / Air Canada's historic film archives, and presenting the airline's moving image history in a series of DVDs. The whole idea was to unlock this great, forgotten cine film material so it could be enjoyed by everyone, not only today, but in the future. Air Canada had donated their film archives to the government museum as simply ran out of space. And it hadn't seen the light of day in decades. As the films were in many cases 50 to 70 years old, Henry felt it was imperative that the films be digitized sooner than later, to protect the precious images from age related deterioration. In 2013, these fabulous historic films will be released by HenryTenby.com and we hope you enjoy this short film, which is our way of saying Happy Birthday to Air Canada, and thank you to all the airline's great staff for building such a superb company that all Canadians can be proud of. This clip features Trans-Canada Air Lines' Lockheed Lodestar, Avro Lancastrian, Canadair DC-4M2 Northstar, Douglas DC-3, Lockheed Super Constellation, Vickers Viscount and Vanguard, and Douglas DC-8; the latter types which also appear in Air Canada colours circa mid-1960s.
