This 1979 former Nordair 737 was bought from Air Canada by First Air June 18, 2002. Air Canada divested itself from the cargo door 737s first since they were worth more on the market for their ability to work from gravel runways; something for which Air Canada had no requirement. C-GNDC was stored at Ottawa, ON in March 2015.
Having been withdrawn at the end of 2001, this 737's tail has become a convenient meeting place for birds. Originally delivered to Nordair June 15, 1979 it would follow mergers into CP Air and Canadian Airlines before completing the merger with Air Canada in early 2001. Sold to First Air June 18, 2002, C-GNDC was retired in November 2015 and stored at Ottawa.
Nordair took delivery of this 737 June 16, 1971. It carried on to fly with CP Air and Canadian Airlines International through mergers. After 1995 it flew cargo with Canair Cargo, Royal Aviation and Canada 3000 through another line of mergers. The freighter was sold to Logistic Air in 2003 and broken up in 2009.
