Vancouver-based CP Air operated a fleet of five Douglas DC-8-43 aircraft on domestic and international long haul services between 1961 and 1981. CP Air’s DC-8-43s were frequently seen in Amsterdam, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Honolulu, and various cities in Canada.
Delivered new from the Douglas factory in CF-CPF, -CPH, -CPI, -CPJ and -CPG, the fleet was retired in 1980/81 and ferried down to Miami where they were soon after reduced to scrap.
You can now order your exclusively produced 1/50th scale cast aluminum CP Air DC-8-43. We require a deposit at time of order, and please allow eight weeks for the completion of your model.
