Interesting... I saw a CV5800 on finals for 26L today @ YVR at about 5:55pm local. They only have the one stretch-580 right?

Yes Kelowna Flightcraft only has the one stretch right now, they have another airframe in the hangar in YLW that is being stretched. The only other three CV5800's in existance are flying for Contract Air Cargo out of Pontiac Michigan. The CV5800 you saw was doing training flights.
