Note that the titles of its former operator, Trans-Canada Airlines, can just be discerned on the fuselage top. For many years this aircraft hauled parachutists out of Lodi, CA., but then was withdrawn from use and acted as a billboard for the airport café there. However in October 2020 the aircraft was acquired by Preferred Airparts LLC and trucked back to their Kidron, OH., base.

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.

Taken on strength in 1967, this Skyhawk did two deployments aboard the USS Bon Homme Richard in Vietnam (1969 and 70). Later with Fleet Composite Squadron 7 (VC-7), the aircraft joined the Blue Angels in 1984. It now "flies" the slot position in the four plane Blue Angel display at the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, FL. Note, 154217 was a spare aircraft this day and USMC Captain Mark Bircher flew it in his number 2 position without a crew name under the canopy.
