Delivered to Trans Canada Airlines March 28, 1957, this Viscount is here in it's last days with Harrison Airways. Bought January 1977 along with another Viscount (CF-TIC) and serving as a source of spares. Sold to the British Columbia Institute of Technology in June 1980 to train aviation mechanics. Replaced by a 737 in 1995, it was stored outside and eventually used by the fire department for training. In 2005, it was sold to the British Columbia Aviation Museum for $1. Barged across the Georgia Strait to Victoria airport, it has been restored in original TCA colors at the museum.
