As the topic states. When did they stop operating and what happened to their aircraft? Thanks Chris

It didn't. In June 1999 I traveled to the the USA and we visited Zantop at Detroit Willow Run. At that time Zantop still operated one or two planes and were busy trying to make three other planes operational. The other Zantop planes are located at Detroit Willow Run.

I can confirm this because i work at willow run. They still fly a couple of electras. I don't know if they are still trying to make some more airworthy. All of their DC8's and convairs are permanently parked at Willow run.
