An ex-CP B732 was sunk today in the Pacific Ocean, just off Chemainus, a city close to where I live, in British Columbia Canada. This 732 is part of the amazing artificial reefs off the coast of British Columbia, which include a sister aircraft, as well as other old time ships. Apparently this area has some amazing natural reefs, and it is hoped that the artificial ones will be used to attract even more visitors who will then be amazed by the natural ones... I wish that instead of the desert, more retired aircraft served other purposes.
Don't know what registration this particular aircraft sported, but here's a pic of one CP
732, before the airline was gulped by Air Canada.
