Revisions to more Canadian and American Avenger crashes

I’ve finished going through the Department of Transport accident cards (Canada) that were issued from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s. The C-GLEI crash reveals a different pilot, an exact date and a more precise location than the one I listed. N4171A has a new date and N7016C has a revised crash location. The NTSB report lists it as Gibbonsville, Idaho, but other sources say it was at near Lost Trail Pass, Beaverhead County, Montana, or just “near Beaverhead”. For an interesting exercise, look up those two locations online, and you will find that they are not too far apart, and that Beaverhead is right on the boundary between Idaho and Montana. Concerning C-GFPS (BuNo 85460), which started out commercially as N7032C, we still don’t know the first owner, but I suspect it might be Richardson Aviation or one of the Idaho companies. There are also many minor corrections, and I will be proceeding with this for the next little while.
