This 1978 Metro was one of three delivered to Lineas Aereas Privadas Argentinas, the first private airline in Argentina to be able to compete with the government owned Aerolineas Argentinas and Austral Airlines. The Metros were sold in the USA and Inland Empire Airlines leased all three in November 1979. This one went to Britt Airways when Air Chaparrall (who had absorbed Inland Empire) ceased operations. The aircraft was recently with Carson Air in Canada as C-GKLN from 2007 - 2017.
In July 2009 LX/Swiss were celebrating 30 years of continous service from Zurich to my home airport Nuernberg. To honour this occasion, Swiss came in with an A340 instead of the regular Avroliner. It is also the reason I uploaded this image from my archive, the Metroliner of Crossair was the first aircraft type used on this route.
Delivered March 5, 1968 to Skymark Airlines, which merged with Aero Commuter Airlines March 28, 1969. The airlines was renamed Golden West in 1969 and this Twin Otter was leased to Frontier Airlines from 1971 to 1978. The aircraft is presently N716NC flying sky divers with Freefall Express in New York state at the time of uploading.
Wardair's second DC-10 ordered and the first delivered on November 3, 1978. Sister ship C-GXRB would follow in December. Sold to the GPA Group in September 1988, it would be converted to a freighter in 1997. Last known stored at Miami.
VH-FTX was registered in June 1979. It was destroyed when it spiralled into a house following a mid-air collision with a Piper Archer near Hoxton Park, Sydney, on June 6, 1998. Both occupants of the Tomahawk were killed. The Archer landed safely.
