Written off

Otter 246 was delivered to the United States Army on 15th March 1958 with serial 57-6118 (tail number 76118). It was one of sixteen Army Otters delivered from Downsview to Addison, Texas for work to be done on them by Collins Radio Corporation. Most of this batch was then delivered to Europe although 76118 was painted in the red and white colour scheme and was delivered to a topographic unit. Unfortunately, its unit allocation is unknown. 76118 was deleted from the Army inventory in March 1960 as the result of a crash in which it was destroyed.
