MSN 647 was built in 1979 for Pennsylvania Airlines, and went on to fly for Holiday Airlines in the U.S. and Flight West Airlines of Australia before returning to North America in February 1998. It was then operated on amphibs out of south Florida by Huizenga Holdings until being sold by CAAMS to Guatemala in 2009.

MSN 198, the somewhat legendary (amongst Skydivers anyway) and aptly named "Frankenotter" was built in 1968 for Imperial Oil. Following a rather devastating fire while operated by Skydive Chicago it was rebuilt by the experts at Rocky Mountain Aircraft in Springbank in 1998 and delivered to Fayard Enterprises. It shed it's unique paint job several years later, adopting the standard blue & white Fayard scheme.

A full history of the aircraft can be found here
