Kelowna/Purolator CV-580 Questions

Sun Jun 08, 2014 6:04 pm

Need some information on the CV-580s that Kelowna Flightcraft operated for Purolator. Any info will be very much appreciated.

Which 580s were used on the Purolator flights?

As far as I know the 580s had no cargo door. Did they have special containers like Airborne or was it bulk loading?

Did the aircraft keep the front airstair?

Again thanks for any info you can provide. Also looking for CV-580 slides.

Most of the A.net photos of Kelowna Flightcraft 580s in cargo configuration show a large main deck cargo door.

Kelowna also supplies Convair 580s to IFL Group located at PTK:

IFL Group

IFL Group > Aircraft > Convair 580

Incidently IFL also has the Convair 5800:

Airliners.net has several photos of the IFL CV-580s usually under Contract Air Cargo

Some YouTube Videos on the subject:
