C45 Cowling Couch


C45 Expeditor Engine Cowling Couch: This beautiful centerpiece couch is made from C45 Expeditor engine cowlings. Aluminum is mirror-polished and couch upholstered in Canadian red. 100s of hours of work has gone into this piece, from cleaning to stripping, from imagining to sketching, from designing to final fabrication into something absolutely breathtaking. This unique accent piece pays homage to our men and their flying machines. It’s giving second life to the salvaged airplane parts that once guarded our skies with glory.

History: The C-45 is a military version of the Model 18 light commercial transport that first flew on January 15, 1937. 5,204 military models were delivered during World War 2. A number of C-45 transports served with the RCAF from 1944-1967 under the name Expeditor 3NM, 3NMT, 3T, etc., as a twin-engine navigational trainer, crew transport and a "hack", or taxi. Versions of both the C-45 and its civil counterpart, the Model 18, served with thirty of the world's air forces.
