Purchased from Air Canada. Taken stored at Winnipeg Airport, Manitoba, Canada circa May 1974 with the winter snow still lingering on.

Note that both the inner Dart engines have been removed and the nacelles blanked off which suggests that the aircraft was still considered fit for sale and return to service.

However, not long afterwards the aircraft was dismantled and moved by road to Teulon, Manitoba, Canada.

The aircraft behind is CF-TIB (C/N 310).
