Wardair takes delivery of first Boeing 747-1D1 CF-DJC on
April 23 1973 Boeing 727 CF-FUN, 1 of Wardairs two
Boeing 707's, and Fox Moth 83c CF-DJB.

So I'd say the sky is the limit for Morningstar . . .

First one arriving at YYZ tomorrow, July 29, will be parked out at FedEx facilities.
For first two to four weeks, will be used as a spare should a B727 have mechanical issues.

Guys - yes this is great, but Morningstar does not own the aircraft, nor did they buy them. They were given to Morningstar by Fedex.

So if you were given something, does that not mean you own it.... Or are all those gifts I received over the years, loaned to me for life?
