I had seen it and photographed it at Miami in 1978 as TI-LRM with LACSA, and in 1982 as N359AC with Turbopower Inc. It began its career with Qantas in Oct 59 as VH-ECA. Also F-OGST and N359Q before going on the British register initially as Air Atlantique.
Operated for Atlantic Airlines from 1999 until withdrawn from use on 21 Mar 2013. Sold to Buffalo Airways and departed Coventry on 23 Mar 2013 on delivery to Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Became C-GZFE in April 2013. Stored behind is G-LOFC.
Served with Atlantic Airlines since 1999. On 12 Oct 2006 the #3 engine cowling separated during taxi for take-off at East Midlands, causing some damage to the Electra. With its CofA expiring in Sep 2007, this was enough to get the aircraft to be withdrawn from use and stored at Coventry, as seen here. It was eventually broken up in May 2013.
This Electra left Coventry for Canada 23 March 2013 and was officially registered to Buffalo Airways as C-GZFE on 30 April 2013. This photo was taken two weeks later, but at that time the new registration had not been applied yet.
It had been repossessed from TPI International whose colours it is in. The aircraft name (translated as The Flamethrower) was from its TPI days. Started life as PH-LLL with KLM (as a passenger version) and I happened to fly on it from Amsterdam to Birmingham (UK) on 15 April 1968!
