An August sun shines as CF-CPI prepares to take flight from Prestwick. She was delivered to Canadian Pacific Airlines in May, 1961, and flew this new CP corporate livery from 1968 to 1980, when she was scrapped. One of only 20 DC-8-43 series built, she was equipped with R.CO.12 Mk 512 turbofans, a 4% leading edge extension, a 1.5 deg. drooped flap, and beefier landing gear. A sister-ship, CF-CPG was the 1st transport aircraft to exceed the speed of sound, as N9604Z on a pre-delivery test flight.
