12/31/2007. Remarks by Jack
McKillop: "By 1936, Fairchild Aircraft of Canada decided to
build a larger aircraft with the RCAF and Canadian Airways as
prospective customers. The result was the 45-80, a twin-engine
sesquiplane with the name Sekani, an Indian tribe living around the
headwaters of the Peace and Liard Rivers in northwest British Columbia.
Literally, Sekain means "dwellers on the rocks".
