Appropriately sombre weather to mark the last flight for this 1955 built Convair 580. It has just arrived at the B.C. Aviation Museum from its former base at Abbotsford (CYXX). I first saw it as Convair 440 OO-SCS of SABENA on 1 February 1964. Behind is Douglas Invader CF-BMS which is also an ex Conair fire bomber.

The end of the road for the Conair Convair fleet as this was the last season for the aircraft. After serving the province for over 20 years, Tanker 55 will either end up as scrap or in a museum somewhere.

Originally a Convair 340 with Delta Airlines (N4810C) delivered in 1953, C-FKFA was previously with Kelowna Flightcraft Air Charter. The aircraft was acquired by Conair in 2000 and converted to a tanker for fire fighting. Though current at the time of uploading, Conair is retiring the Convairs in favor of newly converted DHC-8-400s.

This group of three CV580's have been assigned to Penticton for the fire season and it is likely to be the last year for them to be contracted to the British Columbia Forest Service as they are said to be retiring at the end of the season. They have been very effective in fighting fires for well over 20 years.
