Regrettably these were the final days for this airline, as its operating licence was revoked on 12th August 1965, due to 'unsatisfactory service', after several major delays were encountered. CF-WWH was subsequently transferred to its new operator, Nordair and CF-PXX was repossessed by its lessor, Eagle Aircraft.
