Linea Aeropostal Venezolana took delivery of this HS-748 May 21, 1965. Sold to Austin Airways as C-GDOV in 1980, it flew with several regional airlines in Quebec until bought by First Air in October 1984. Sadly, the aircraft crashed on a night departure from Dayton, OH in poor weather January 12, 1988.
