On February 1, 1991, Yellowkife-based Air Canada Connector NWT Air operated Canada’s last passenger Lockheed L188 Electra scheduled service. Combi Electra C-FIJV operated the Yellowknife-Coppermine-Cambride-Coppermine-Yellowknife routing under the command of Captain John Sorenson and his crew. In this program, Henry Tenby takes us aboard the second to last final day of scheduled passenger Lockheed Electra services in Canada (January 30, 1991), also under the command of Captain John Sorenson. It was a typical arctic winter day. Mostly clear, with bitterly cold temperatures hovering at the minus 35 degrees C mark across the arctic. This trip is forever preserved in the NWT Air Electra DVD by AirlineHobby.com DVDs.
