This Canadian Vickers-built Canso (ex C-FJCV, CF-JCV, RCAF 11054) was hired from its owners, Catalina Safari Company, to fly the Peter Stuyvesant Travel Odyssey in 1993. This was a filmed tour to Mexico, USA, Newfoundland, Greenland and Iceland. It included a contest between teams from Holland, Belgium and France, and was later shown on TV in these countries. After a job well done, the Catalina returned to Africa to fly tourists from Egypt to Zimbabwe, but was sold as ZK-PBY a year later. It was still active there by 2016.

Ah, those were the days! LOT Ilyushin 18, in need of some cleaning, on short finals runway 19R at Schiphol... It was withdrawn from use five years later and preserved in Warsaw in 1991. Sadly it was burnt by vandals near the Poniatowski Bridge on September 26, 1995.

Ex Conair C-GKFF. Only flew with this Guatemalan carrier for less than a year, so I was very pleased to get it in front of my camera. It was delivered to Aerovias in October 1987, and withdrawn from service in July 1988. It later flew as YV-501C, 9Q-CJP and EL-WIL, before ending up in storage at Johannesburg-Rand, South Africa in 1997. It was broken up there in early 2004.

The last airworthy Cargomaster in the world (ex HI-246 & USAF 56-1999). Due to FAA restrictions it was only allowed to fly for the Alaska State government, but that included several flights in Jun/Jul 2004, to carry large loads to remote locations in Alaska. In April 2006 it flew again, to Barter Island, AK. It was then sold to the Travis Air Museum, and on 28 Aug 2008 it departed Anchorage for the last time, landing safely at McChord AFB that same day. Two days later it continued to its new home at Travis AFB, where it was placed on display. This was the last flight of a C-133 worldwide.

This Provider, ex USAF 56-4390, was on outdoor display at the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum at Anchorage International Airport for many years. In 2004 it was bought by All West Freight, dismantled, and trucked up north to their private All West Airport. It was obviously still dismantled when this photo was taken, but everything was there (the wings are stored to the right). By late 2017 nothing had changed - the aircraft was still there, in the exact same dismantled condition.

Guyana's national airline made two weekly fligths into Miami, using two Tupolev 154s. One was leased from TAROM (YR-TPJ) and operated in TAROM colours, the other was this very nice Tu-154M in full Guyana livery. Today I was lucky, and I was able to capture this rare bird landing on Miami's southern runway. It was sold to Cubana in 1988 as CU-T1276, then became RA-85818 with Omskavia, EP-MAJ with Iran Air Tour, then back to RA-85818. Last noted in 2009, fate unknown.

F-AZJU moments before touchdown after a slow but wonderful performance at the Airshow Lelystad 2004. This aircraft consists of a Junkers-built fuselage (c/n 24?), mated with CASA-built wings. It served with the Spanish AF as T.2B-212 until 1976, when it was sold as G-BECL. Its current owners, Amicale Jean Baptiste Salis, acquired this venerable aircraft in 1990, and they still operated it at airshows by 2019!

F-AZJU moments before touchdown after a slow but wonderful performance at the Airshow Lelystad 2004. This aircraft consists of a Junkers-built fuselage (c/n 24?), mated with CASA-built wings. It served with the Spanish AF as T.2B-212 until 1976, when it was sold as G-BECL. Its current owners, Amicale Jean Baptiste Salis, acquired this venerable aircraft in 1990, and they still operated it at airshows by 2019!

Seen at the wonderful Airshow Lelystad 2004. This jet, delivered to the USAF in 1949 as 48-178 and serving as such until 1958, was restored to flying condition during the early 1970s by Ben Hall. He also painted it in the Korean War 4th FIW markings it still carries in this photo. Its current owners bought the jet in 1990 (ex N178, N68388), and first flew it on 21 May 1992. By mid 2017 this Sabre was still flying (now as N48178, still in the same markings), as the world's oldest flying jet!

Tankers 44 and 49 were dispatched from Canada and based at Fairbanks-Ft. Wainwright to combat the Parks Highway Fire burning near Nenana, AK, which was getting out of control. Both tankers made a short stop at Fairbanks-International to settle customs affairs before going on to their temporary tanker base at Ft. Wainwright.

A very old DC-6 (delivered Dec 1948), now converted to firebomber. The signs of frequent use of red fire retardant are clearly visible. Macavia's ship 20 does carry titles, almost unreadable just below the logo on the nose.
This aircraft was sold as 9Q-CPL in 1994 and became EL-WNH in 1997. By 2007 it was in use as a fire trainer at Lanseria, South Africa, and it was still there in derelict condition by 2015.

Mozambique's presidential aircraft was not a common sight in Europe, so its visit to Rotterdam Airport was very welcome. This aircraft crashed near Nelspruit, South Africa three years later, on 19 October 1986. The aircraft broke up and caught fire, killing 26 of the 36 passengers, including President Machel.

A Constellation in flight… Sheer grace and beauty. If only today's boring Boeing/Airbus shapes could be replaced by this...! This is what Miami still used to be like in the early 1990s. This Connie, and another one, then a DC-7 and a Mexican DC-6 would all pass this point on short final runway 09L within 20 minutes… Paradise!

It doesn't show, but this immaculate Skymaster was delivered to the USAAF in June 1945 (as 45-507), which means that when this photo was taken, this beauty had just celebrated its 61st birthday. Roger Brooks purchased this former Arizona-based airtanker (ex Tanker 161) in February 2006. He used it to fly all kinds of freight out of its new homebase at Fairbanks, Alaska. Unfortunately it crashlanded near Nenana, AK on 17 January 2007. The wreck was stored at Nenana Airport and was still there by 2018.
