Western airplanes got Delta titles very quickly when their merger integration began April 1987, but the transitional color scheme lasted a bit longer. This 737 remained in the Delta fleet for another twenty years, although the last two were spent in storage at Phoenix-Goodyear airport. It went to Mexico as XA-UIU at the end of 2007.
This 1992 1900C was originally delivered to Business Express as N823BE. After the airline was forced into bankruptcy in 1996, the aircraft was returned to the lessor as they divested of all types except for their Saab 2000. Entering Pacific Coastal's fleet in June 2006, it's still current at the time of uploading.
One of Baxter Aviation's Beavers seen docked on the Fraser River. Tom and Linda Baxter formed this nice little airline in 1985, and sold it to West Coast Air less than a year after this photo was taken, in Apr 2007.
The VIA Seawind, seen here taxiing on the Fraser River, was a one-off conversion by Vancouver Island Air, seen here docked at its Campbell River home base. It had increased seating for 12 pax, 3-bladed props, enlarged floats, an extended nose and a PAC Tradewind single tail. It first flew as such on 23 August 1994. Unfortunately on 20 April 2007 this unique aircraft crashed immediately after lift-off from Topaze Harbour near Jackson Bay, BC, Canada. One engine lost power and the aircraft yawed and crashed back onto the water, causing one float to break off. It sank within a minute.
