I was messing around on flight aware and saw that this DC-10 departed KROW for CYHM. Former registrations include PR-LGO, N608GC, 5X-BON. The last photo on A.NET says its going to VARIG, but with the new registration, I don't think thats where its headed. Anyone have any idea where this old lady is headed?

The aircraft is currently at YHM - still registered N811SL - in all white c/s - no titles.
Acc. to my information it will be the first Kelowna Flightcraft DC-10 for Purolator Courier-
operation. KF is currently working on the plane.

Wow! Thats a big jump to go from 727's to a DC-10. Are they getting bigger routes that would require the 10?

It seems that the intra-canadian cargo market is growing. There are several 727's going
coast to coast every night out of YHM- they might replace two 727's with a DC-10. On the other side Cargojet has just introduced 757/767 freighters doing similar routes - replacing 727's.
Let's not forget the fuel costs and noise problems - not everybody likes the sound of a heavy
727 freighter departing at 01.00 a.m. According to the Kelowna Flightcraft website they will get a total of two DC-10's. They should be easy to get and cheap to aquire now - no idea where the next is coming from.

Quoting STEELHEAD (Reply 4):

Well with Gemni shut down there are some choices there. Most of theirs seem to be in decent shape. May just need a C-check, which isn't too uncommon with bringing a plane out of storage anyways.
