Delivered to Canadian Pacific January 17, 1968, the "Empress of Tokyo" really stands out in the snowscape. CP Air sold the aircraft to Worldways Canada in 1983 and was flown until they ceased flying in 1990. Aerolease Financial bought it in 1991 and converted the stretch eight to a freighter. Air Transport International operated the aircraft for Burlington Air Express in BAX colors and ATI colors until put into storage at Marana, Arizona in 2003.

Perfect winter scene, excellent scan quality! The contrast between the snow and the CP Air colourscheme is just beautiful. Thanks for publishing, Gary!
