Photographer's Remark

Acquired by Atlantic Airlines in 2002, but unused and stored. Seen here still in Reeve Aleutian colours (ex N178RV), but with the titles changed to Reeve Illusion as a joke by Atlantic Airlines employees. Sold to Buffalo Airways and registered to them as C-FIJX in Aug 2010. Departed Coventry on 12 Aug 2010 on delivery to Red Deer, AB, Canada. Converted to airtanker in May 2016 as Tanker 416.
