A Caribou that never saw military service is a rarity. Delivered to Guyana Airways as 8R-GDR on June 22, 1970, this one came back to Canada as C-GVYX for Proair in June 1979. It was later operated by Air Inuit, Wardair (as Max Ward's personal aircraft) and Kenn Borek Air. Photographed here still wearing Wardair's northern color scheme, the airplane was written off November 10, 1987 near Ross River, Yukon.
The second of two Caribou's brought to Malta by NewCal Aviation to refurbish for the civil market. The company outfitted the first (9J-NAA / N5844R) for Union flight of Sacramento, CA, but it was lost on October 23, 1984 during delivery when it ran out of fuel off the coast of Canada and ditched. 9J-NAB became the second aircraft rebuilt and became N900NC with Union Flights.
