Delivered March 30, 1983, this famous 767 is in temporary storage. On July 23, 1983, the new 767 was flying from Ottawa to Edmonton. Due to a combination of inoperative fuel gauges, confusion with metric and English fuel weights, the airplane was loaded with some 9000 kilos of fuel rather than the required 20,400. The flight ran out of fuel and tried gliding to Winnipeg, MB. Unable to make it, the crew deadsticked the airplane into Gimli, MB's closed airport without injuries. The Gimli Glider as it became known, was retired January 1, 2008. It was broken up at Mojave, CA in September 2017.

Purchased by 20th Century Fox, moved overland to Namibia and used in ground sequences of the 2004 re-make of the great 1965 film "Flight of the Phoenix"
