Photo Comment

This 1953 Convair was converted to a 580 in 1968. Pictured while owned by Kelowna Flightcraft and operated as Inter City Air for only a few months; the Convairliner went to Time Air in April 1985. Tragically, the aircraft was lost when it broke up in flight flying freight with Canair Cargo on September 18, 1991.
