This early Dash 7 was delivered to Wardair in August 1978. When the airline shut down their Yellowknife northern operations to concentrate on international jet charters, the aircraft was sold to Air Pacific based in Oakland, CA. After Air Pacific / Golden Gate closed their doors, the airliner was leased by several airlines over the years, including Time Air from February 1987 to May 1990. Further leases kept it busy until it was dismantled after 2002 and the registration (N677MA at the time) was cancelled.
