Planes in Formation, Fleet Cornell

Larry Milberry, Aviation in Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson 1979
Fleet Aviation of Port Erie built a version of the Fairchild PT-19 with an enclosed cockpit for use in the Commonwealth Training program. Following the practise of naming training aircraft after universities, it was named the Cornell.  In total, about 1700 were built. 
Despite the Denmark name on the nose, the flight shown was apparently assigned to the Norwegian air force training unit which were based at Toronto Island Airport.
