Buffalo #461 was a Canadian military de Havilland Canada DHC-5 Buffalo assigned to the second United Nations Emergency Force force in Syria in support of United Nations Security Council Resolution 340. Assigned to a peacekeeping force, Buffalo #461 was shot down by three Syrian missiles on August 9, 1974, killing all nine passengers and crew. The loss of Buffalo #461 remains the largest single-incident loss of life in the history of Canadian peacekeeping operations.
