While most of Air Canada's 727-223s were bought by Fed Ex, this one, delivered May 8, 1975, had a different fate. Withdrawn in September 1992, it was leased for several months to Aerolineas Argentinas (in full Air Canada colors) before being sold to Citicorp in October 1993. The aircraft was converted to a freighter and registered to Bradley Air Services (First Air) September 1994. Retired and stored at Trois Rivieres, Quebec in October 2009, the aircraft was broken up in 2014.
Wartime C-47 44-76631 was transferred to the RAF as KN485 in April 1945. Briefly registered CF-GBG for ferry from Cairo to Montreal for the RCAF in 1951. The aircraft kept the original KN485 serial until the numbering system changed in 1968 and it became 12925. Disposed of in 1975 to become C-GWUG, the aircraft is pictured on lease to Air BC. It crashed into hill tops when flying freight with Kelowna Flightcraft / Purolator Courier during night VFR operations and low ceilings on January 13, 1999.
Fairchild Aircraft re-acquired this 1976 Metro from SkyWest Airlines in July 1987. Burrard Air leased the aircraft from September through November 1987, after which it was returned to Fairchild. The registration was cancelled July 9, 1993 and I presume the aircraft was scrapped.
