Seems to be a contradiction in the first paragraph, i.e. the US Army called it the CV-2, but the US military called it the C-7. 01:04, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Ansett MAL[edit]

According to this Caribous are in operation with Ansett MAL, but Ansett ceased all operations in September 2001. ( (talk) 23:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC))

It is not a list of "current" operators but a list of all that have operated the type. MilborneOne (talk) 12:27, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Brazilian Fleet[edit]

Removed statement about Brazilian Air Force Caribou fleet, since Brazil never operated the type. Someone mixed up the things a little bit: Brazilian Air Force operated DHC-5 Buffalos not Caribous. RobertoRMola (talk) 14:43, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

More detail[edit]

Why no further detail? The design origins, the construction methods (was it wood, all-metal, what?), STOL features (full length flaps? Drooping ailerons?) What makes it so superb at STOL performance? Why the high wing? Maybe note the fact that the distinctive "high tail" was included to allow very high angles-of-attack on landing and take-off while avoiding tail strikes.....45Colt 09:19, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Like all these article they are a work in progress and it just means nobody has got around to expanding it yet, if you have reliable sources then you are welcome to improve the article. MilborneOne (talk) 15:29, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
