Photo Comment

CP Air's fourth and last 747-217 was delivered December 2, 1974 as restrictions on the airline and others that protected Air Canada were gradually lifted. CP Air traded it's 747s to Pakistan International Airlines for DC-10-30s and this one was the first to go in December 1985. Registered AP-BCL, it would be sold to Orange Air Sierra Leone in November 2005 to become 9L-LOR. It was withdrawn from use January 2, 2006 and stored at Tel Aviv. Sold a year later to the USA, the jumbo became N899TJ, was flown to Helena, MT and broken up for parts.
