Air Canada Trivia: On January 14, 2006, a retired Boeing 737-200 took on a new life as an artificial reef when it was sunk 20 meters (60 feet) deep near Chemainus on Vancouver Island. The airframe was donated to the Artificial Reef Society of B.C. by Qwest Airparts Limited (Memphis) and documented for a Discovery Channel series titled Mega Builders. Over 1,000 volunteer hours went into the project, aimed at homing dozens of species of sea life and attracting diving enthusiasts. The 737-275 was originally delivered to Pacific Western Airlines as C-GBPW (msn 20958) on January 13, 1975 and was also occasionally leased to America West Airlines as N128AW. The airframe would migrate to Canadian Airlines and Air Canada with the mergers, retaining its C-GBPW registration.

    Why AC dropped this route to this wonderful California city is beyond me. From what I understood at the time the flight was nearly full everyday.
