The C-GNAU History

With Serial Number (MSN) 21817, the Boeing 737 C-GNAU boasts a rich history dating back to its delivery to Piedmont Airlines in 1979.

Following its tenure with Canada 3000, the aircraft settled at Air North in the Yukon until its retirement in 2011, resting gracefully in Whitehorse.

In 2023, a transformative chapter commenced for the Boeing 737 C-GNAU as it underwent meticulous cutting, paving the way for its reincarnation as an exclusive Aviationtag in 2024.

A Glimpse into Air North's Rich Heritage

Since its inception in 1977 by Joe Sparling and Tom Wood, Air North has emerged as a beacon of excellence in Yukon's aviation landscape. Initially founded as Air North Charter and Training, the airline's humble beginnings were rooted in offering charter flights to the mining industry and flight training services. However, Air North soon outgrew its initial scope, expanding its fleet to include a diverse range of aircraft, from Cessna 206 to Douglas DC-3 and DC-4 aircraft.

Over the years, Air North's growth trajectory has been marked by strategic advancements, including the transition to Hawker Siddeley 748 turboprops and the acquisition of Boeing 737 jets. The airline's commitment to delivering authentic Yukon hospitality has earned it widespread acclaim, culminating in accolades such as being named Canada's Best Airline by Tripadvisor in 2020.

At its core, Air North embodies the spirit of Yukon, offering seamless connectivity between the territory and key destinations across Canada. With a firm emphasis on exceptional service and community engagement, Air North continues to uphold its legacy as Yukon's premier airline, delivering unparalleled experiences to passengers and stakeholders alike.

Exploring the Iconic Boeing 737-200

The Boeing 737-200 stands as a testament to aviation innovation, embodying the spirit of versatility and endurance that has defined the Boeing 737 series for decades. Introduced as an extended version of the original 737-100, the 737-200 quickly became a staple in commercial aviation, renowned for its robust performance and adaptability to various operational environments.

With its maiden flight in April 1967 and entry into service in February 1968 with Lufthansa, the Boeing 737-200 marked the beginning of a storied lineage that would revolutionize the airline industry. Equipped with Pratt & Whitney JT8D low bypass turbofan engines, the 737-200 offered seating for 85 to 130 passengers, catering to both short-haul and regional routes with aplomb.

In the realm of aviation, the Boeing 737-200 carved a niche for itself as a workhorse aircraft, capable of navigating challenging terrains and delivering reliable performance in diverse conditions. Its adaptability was further underscored by the introduction of variants such as the 737-200 Advanced, featuring enhanced aerodynamics, more powerful engines, and increased fuel capacity to meet evolving operational requirements.

Throughout its illustrious career, the Boeing 737-200 demonstrated remarkable resilience, enduring multiple iterations and modifications to remain relevant in an ever changing industry landscape. From its initial production run in the late 1960s to its continued service in select regions well into the 21st century, the 737-200 left an indelible mark on aviation history, earning its place as a beloved icon among pilots, crew members, and passengers alike.

      The fact that C-GNAU wore several hybrid liveries during its time in Canada makes this airframe even more interesting.
      The B737-200 was indispensable for assuring service to remote communities. And as the world's largest operator of the type is located in Canada, it is clearly still needed!
      Happy to add this B737-200 to my collection of Aviationtags!

      It’s amazing how robust technology was in the 60s. I wonder if we’ll be seeing aircraft delivered today will still be flying in 40 years time. I have read up more on the model and the gravel kit option is very cool. I hope to get one of these tags as a tribute soon!

      Finally glad to have a -200 tag to add to my collection. Looks fantastic alongside my other Air North tags (Just missing a bi-colour 😢) but sure I will manage to acquire one soon. Great aircraft and full of history from Piedmont Airlines to its final flight in Canada.
