Vancouver, Canada based Pacific Western Airlines lasted as its own entity until they combined with CP Air to become Canadian Airlines in 1987, then eventually Canadian was purchased by Air Canada in 2001. Air Canada ended up operating many of the ex-Pacific Western 737s and eventually retired the 737 fleet in 2003. C-GIPW escaped the scrappers claw and was donated to the Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton, Alberta in 2005 after being painted back into its original Pacific Western scheme. The repaint did not exactly match the original Pacific Western scheme, so we have released this additional set to allow you to model the preserved C-GIPW. For the original Pacific Western scheme, see our set 737-147.
