Canada 3000's C-FOOH

Our October edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" takes us back to December 1998, and this Canada 3000 Airlines 757-23A, C-FOOH (c/n 24293, l/n 220), as it taxies to Gate 26.

24293 was originally purchased by AWAS, and delivered to Air 2000 [DP/AMM] (UK) in April 1989 as G-OOOH. In June 1994, it was leased to Avianca [AV/AVA] (Colombia) as N989AN. In May 1995, it was leased to Canada 3000 [2T/CMM], and served with the airline until its closure in November 2001. A few months later, in April 2002, it was leased to Cameroon Airlines as TJ-CAG. FedEx purchased 24293 from AWAS in April 2009, converted to a freighter, and registered as N922FD "Remy" (f/n 922).
