No, it was National that lost a 747 in Afghanistan...

Nationair was a Canadian company that crashed in Saudi Arabia in 1991

National Air Cargo .. Three letter NCR.
They operate a handful of both the B757 and B747.
I've seen their B757 at YHZ & YQX on tech stops doing troop flights for the USAF.

Their Cargo op has been into YYC a couple times a year.

I thought their passenger op was more for US/UK troop movements.

Yep.

They were going to run a B767 YVR - MCO starting last May 4 times a week - but they said they didn't have enough interest and sales were too low......so they never showed.

...Seems they are going to remove the axe and the control column from the cockpits for security reasons.

It's amazing how travelling public gets sucked into using these shoe-string, fly-by-night outfits

Fair enough, but any different than a lot of 703 companies in Canada?
