According to "History of Airlines in Canada" a book byJohn Blatherwick, there were infact three A300's
Two of them wereA300B4's C-GIZJ, and C-GIZL. and the third one was an A300C4 C-GIZN all were returned to South African.
Also the there were 14 A310's ordered but only 12 were taken up, the other two were not accepted. As well as 8 MD-88's and * F28-0100's (F100) whose orders were cancelled in 1989.
Many people say that ONE of the major reasons that Wardair was doing badly was because Airbus offered the A310's to Wardair FREE for 12 months, so for a year WARDAIR didn't pay a penny for them, and then after that year was up, they had to pay through their teeth for those things, and it was Very Very hard to keep up with the payments.
Oddly enough Wardair was also a majar reason the Canadian failed. If they had left Wardair alone for another year, Wardair would have folded, and Canadian could have taken up any of their sched. routes and even planes, for almost nothing. But apparently there Canadian was getting false information from someone at Air Canada, that AC was looking at buy Wardair, and if CP let that happen then they would have gone under for sure. Either way CP was going to loose out, on one hand they spend tones of money to buy Wardair, or let AC buy wardair and take over some of their better routes (even though AC had not plans to do anything like that).
