WOTR EP034 – Plane Crash Site of the Canso Bomber in Tofino BC

This episode is solely about the hike in along the “Bomber Trail” to get to the RCAF Canso Bomber Plane (Flight 11007) that crashed into the side of Radar Hill outside of Tofino BC, Canada in February of 1945. It was carrying four 250lb depth charges, 12 crew and 3,400 litres of fuel. It’s amazing that everyone survived the crash. The wreckage is still up on the hill with an unofficial trail to get to it. I chronicle a bit of the hike and the wreckage as it stands now.

If I don’t stress it enough in the video, do a little research before you go in. It’s a 45 minute hike but one could easily get lost and some people have.
