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.

HKF, along with KFL and KFB were grounded during the worst wildfire season in British Columbia history due to smoke. Even though it was mid morning it seemed like night time. The next day, the smoke had lifted enough so that they could return to actioning the many fires burning in the area.
