Air Canada took control of Canadian Airlines in 2000. They kept the airlines separate for another year to get Canadian's balance sheet in better shape. This 767 was brought into Canadian's fleet the same year as their DC-10s were retired. Originally with Aeromexico, the leased aircraft was merged into the Air Canada fleet March 29, 2001. Pictured awaiting a new engine, it was returned to GE Capital Aviation Service in 2003.
Quebecair leased this 1979 737 from Trans European Airways (OO-TEK) in the winters of 1979/80/81/82 and 1985 for charters to sunshine destinations. The aircraft was last leased, and then bought by Aloha Airlines, who flew it from 1989 to 2002. It was stored at Mojave, CA until broken up in 2005.
Nearly all that remains of Canada's Mach 2 Avro Arrow program. The first of five Mark 1 prototypes flew on March 25, 1958, but the program had been under scrutiny since 1957 by a newly elected government. The pictured aircraft was the first Arrow Mk 2 powered by the more powerful, yet lighter, Canadian designed Iroquois engine. It was being prepared for taxi testing when cancellation happened on February 20, 1959. 14,000 workers lost their job and all aircraft, engines, tooling and technical drawings were ordered scrapped.
Originally US Navy Corsair bu 123168, this aircraft was transferred to Honduras Air Force as FAH-603 in 1956. It was among seven Corsairs returned to the USA as a collection of parts in 1979. Using parts from Bu 122179, the fighter was rebuilt to flying status in 1987-88, but since the original data plate was illegible, the aircraft adopted the identity of bu 122179.
In 2018, this Seaking was painted in the original RCN delivery colors for retirement ceremonies after 55 year service in Canada. Retired from Shearwater Squadrons on Canada's East coast in January 2018, the aircraft is pictured preparing for 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron retirement parade as the last squadron to operate the type. The last CH-124s were withdrawn in December 2018 to be replaced by Sikorsky CH-148 Cylones.
This 1976 F-28 was originally delivered the Ivory Coast Government as TI-VAB. Remaining in Côte d'Ivoire with Air Ivoire and Peace Air Togo as TU-TIN and TU-TIZ, the aircraft returned to Holland sometime after 1995. Sold to Time Air in November 1997, it was registered C-GTIZ . Pictured in Canadian Regional's "proud wings" livery, the aircraft would retire after Canadian Airline's purchase by Air Canada and their respective regional partners merged to form Jazz.
Mounted for display along side the highway in Ear Falls, ON with an appropriate, but fictitious registration. Originally with the Royal Canadian Air Force beginning in March 1952 as 1525, reserialled to 5184 in July 1967. The aircraft was disposed of by Crown Assets in 1970 and became CF-ZQG. It was acquired by the Ear Falls District Museum circa 1984. Note the Canadian Airways Limited logo on the nose.
Wartime 43-6251 went to the Cal Aero Technical Institute in Glendale, CA. An instructional airframe, it was sold to Ed Maloney, owner of the Air Museum (later Planes of Fame Museum relocated to Chino, CA) in 1953. Later removed from display and re-built to fly as N4235Y, the fighter has since been repainted in USAAF markings
Originally World War II 42-24337, this C-47 has been with Environmental Aviation Services since December 1979. There is confusion about the identity of this aircraft as it seems parts from RCAF Dakota 12930 (c/n 13303) that crashed in the Canadian arctic in 1971 were used to rebuild N64767. The FAA lists c/n 13303 for this aircraft after 1985.
Taken on strength in October 1970, this is ex USAF 57-368 with 425 Squadron. Retired in 1985 as an instructional airframe when the Voodoos finally left service. The aircraft is now on display at Reynolds Museum, Wetaskawin, AB.
