Delivered to the US Army as 58-1694, this Otter went to Vietnam in 1963. Placed in storage at Vung Tau for disposal in 1971, it was among 5 Otters donated to Nicaragua. Damaged landing in the jungle in 1976, it was recovered in 1979 and with another wrecked Otter, shipped to Miami as scrap. They were trucked to Duncan, BC where parts were used to rebuild Otter 288. Photographed here on the way to Boeing Field to be rebuilt, it was flying as N8510T by 1982 and had a turbine conversion in 2007
Upon retirement, this former Canadian Airlines International, Pacific Western Airlines Boeing 737 was completely stripped, then put on a barge and moved to the Stuart Channel near Chemainus and amid a joyous celebration including hundreds of boats and a ferry, was sunk and is now an artificial reef enjoyed by divers from all over the world.
Former Nordair / Canadian Airlines C-GNDM prepared for lease (or sale, it never came back to Canada) to Cayman Airways. Last with Venezolana (RAV,S.A.) as YV742T in 2010, the aircraft was used as a source of parts.
Delivered to the Province of Ontario's Department of Lands and Forests December 12, 1966, this turbo Beaver first appeared in Vancouver for Air West sometime around 1978. Pictured in the (then) new Air West color scheme, the aircraft would make a successful forced landing in a field after an engine failure later in 1980. Unfortunately during the recovery, it was dropped by the helicopter and written off. It was, however, rebuilt in Seattle to become N4603U but seems to have disappeared from written records after 1987.
