Final flight CP-140 Arcturus
The CP-140 Arcturus tail number 120 flew its last flight to its retirement home at the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) in Tucson, Arizona, on Feb. 28. It joins the 4,900 aircraft stored on AMARG’s high-security, 1,052 hectare area.
Three Arcturus, tail numbers 119, 120 and 121, were delivered to 14 Wing Greenwood, N.S., in 1993; now only 119 is operational and is used as a training aircraft for the school at 404 Long Range Patrol and Training (LRP&T) Squadron, at 14 Wing.
Arcturus 120 was retired with 10,300 flying hours on its airframe and more than 23,000 landings.
