One of Proctor and Gambles Gulfrteam IIs. This one was with the company from 1968 - 1989 variously registered N3PG, N4NP, N8PG, N7ZX and back to N8PG. Last with the Government of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil as PP-EMS, but stored around 2010 and the registration re-used on a King Air.
Delivered to Canadian Pacific January 17, 1968, the "Empress of Tokyo" really stands out in the snowscape. CP Air sold the aircraft to Worldways Canada in 1983 and was flown until they ceased flying in 1990. Aerolease Financial bought it in 1991 and converted the stretch eight to a freighter. Air Transport International operated the aircraft for Burlington Air Express in BAX colors and ATI colors until put into storage at Marana, Arizona in 2003.
"Graubünden" was with Swissair from 1975 to 1991, when it was sold to Northwest to become N224NW. It was withdrawn and stored at Marana, AZ in October 2006. Later sold to ATA Airlines as N708TZ and World Airways, reverting to N224NW, the DC-10 never actually moved from Marana and remained in storage.
VH-BHK was registered in 1960 and used to supporting bauxite mining at Weipa, Queensland. It was withdrawn from use at Cairns, Queensland in December 1977. Approval was given to ferry it to Sydney in January 1978 for scrapping. Initially it went to Sydney's Kingsford-Smith Airport, possibly a weather diversion, before being ferried the short distance to Bankstown Airport where it joined a Piaggio graveyard with eight others. In 1984 the derelict -BHK was sold to a Brisbane collector, who trucked it back to Queensland. It ended up as an exhibit at the Queensland Air Museum at Caloundra
