End of operational life for this former airtanker Electra, due to corrosion found in the wings. Its underbelly tank has already been removed. It served as an airtanker with Air Spray only briefly, for about two years.
Delivered to Northwest as N129US in 12.59 and later N777DP, PT-DZK, N8LG and N360Q; leased by TPI to ABC in 6.89 and was the only Electra ever to carry these full colours - painted shortly before this photo and boy didn't she look smart. Reverted to N360Q with JBQ in 12.92 and later leased to Hunting and Channel Express. Bought by Air Spray in 1.03 as C-GYVI, wfu at Red Deer by late 2007 and stripped of all useful parts
