Photo Comment

Here's the twin-engine prototype Jetstar departing for what will almost certainly be it's last flight. Developed for a military requirement that was cancelled, Lockheed proceeded with the design as a business jet. The aircraft is pictured heading to Vancouver to be used at the British Columbia Institute of Technology for training. It was donated as part of an offset agreement when Canada bought the Lockheed CP-140 Aurora. Later leased long term to the Museum of Flight in Seattle , the jet was moved by road to Everett, WA for restoration in 2006.
