This Air Canada Boeing 767-300ER, registered as C-FCAB with the fleet number of “681”, started its airline life with Canadian Airlines in April 1988 in their old chevron livery.
C-FCAB was merged into the Air Canada fleet in 1999. The fleet number was changed to “681”, because AC already had a “631” in their fleet.
Today, after getting the number 2 engine swapped to a higher time engine, C-FCAB will depart for Marana (MZJ) this afternoon (October 21, 2017) for its last ever flight.
C-FCAB has logged 129,900 hours and approximately 23,404 cycles approximately.
Its sistership, C-FCAE “682”, has the honor of having the highest flying time on any Boeing 767 in the world (according to AC sources) at 131,300 hrs and 23,400 cycles approximately.
C-FCAE will also be headed to MZJ in the coming days.
C-FCAB will be operating as flight AC7099 departing Toronto (Pearson) (YYZ) at 14:00 hours today.
Air Canada is gradually retiring its Boeing 767-300 fleet.
