The Fate of Canadian Pacific Airlines’ Boeing 707 by Henry Tenby

The Fate of Canadian Pacific Airlines’ Boeing 707 story by Henry Tenby
Airliners Magazine, Summer 1993

In October, 1967, Canadian Pacific Airlines wet leased a Boeing 707-138B from Seattle-based Standard Airways. The aircraft was painted in full CPA colours, and for the most part operated CPA’s scheduled service to Honolulu, and was also seen in Mexico City.

This was quite a rare aircraft and her time with CPA was short-lived as the result of a landing accident at Vancouver, the morning of February 7, 1968. The 707 was operating CP flight 322 inbound from Honolulu, and as is typical that time of year, weather conditions were foggy and calm.

The following article written for Airliners Magazine documents this unfortunate event.
