One of three DC-10-10s leased by CP Air from United Airlines, who in turn, leased 3 of CP Air's DC-10-30s. The DC-10-30 was required for United's new Seattle and Portland to Tokyo route. This particular DC-10 was bought by Delta Airlines as a hedge against Lockeed L1011 delivery problems. Sold to United and leased back before delivery on February 16, 1973 and returned May 14, 1975. CP Air's lease ran from March 21, 1983 to May 22, 1987. Federal Express bought the aircraft July 5, 2001 for parts and it was broken up at Goodyear airport, Phoenix, AZ.
