The story of the Boeing 767-200 Air Canada C-GUAB:
A Journey Above the Clouds
Affectionately known as the "Maple Leaf," the C-GUAB embodies the spirit of Air Canada. With graceful curves and a wide wingspan, this aircraft has carried passengers across continents, connecting cultures and fulfilling dreams. Let's delve into the story of this extraordinary machine:

1. The first flight
In the autumn chill of 1982, the C-GUAB made its maiden flight. The moment - engines revving, wheels lifting off the runway - still resonates with collectors. Imagine owning a piece of that history - a meticulously crafted scale model that captures every detail, from the cabin window to the tail fin.

2. Transatlantic Pioneer
C-GUAB didn't just focus on routine flights. No, he craved adventure. In 1984, it became the first Boeing 767 variant to cover the transatlantic distance without a stopover. Imagine the wide ocean beneath his wings, the Atlantic winds whispering secrets as he flew from Montreal to London. And now imagine holding that same model in your hands - a tangible connection to his daring adventure.

3. Technical wonders
Let's take a look at the technical data - the heart of every aviation enthusiast. The C-GUAB has a wingspan of 47.5 metres, its Pratt & Whitney JT9D engines pushing it to a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet. Range? A staggering 5,556 km

4. The Story of Gimli the Glider Ah, Gimli Glider - an aviation legend made in history. Imagine Boeing 767-200 Air Canada C-GUAB, just five months old, flying between Ottawa and Edmonton. But fate had other plans - a fuel miscalculation landed him on an abandoned airstrip in Gimli, Manitoba
