This duo of Convairs saw service with Prinair during the early 1980s, but had been withdrawn from use for more than 4 years when this photo was taken. The one in front, N771PR, is special: it is the Convair 580 prototype, converted from a Convair 340 in 1959 (first flight as a Conv580 on 19 January 1960 as N5100). The one in the background is N900WC (c/n 110). Both aircraft were scrapped here during the early 1990s.
This former Prinair Convair has definitely seen better days. It probably ended up in storage here in the mid 1980s, after having been sold by Prinair to a truck rental company. It was acquired by Kelowna Flightcraft for spares in March 1990, and slowly reduced to scrap in the following years. It was officially cancelled from the register as 'scrapped' in May 1999.
First delivered as a piston Convair to AVENSA in 1957 and converted to turboprop while still owned by the Venezuelan carrier in 4.69. Sold in the US 11.79 and after various leases, to Kelowna as C-GKFP in 4.90. To Nolinor in 11.05 and current, looking very smart in their colours
