This aircraft initially served with the Canadian Air Force as a CC-106 Yukon, serial 15508, then 15928 and finally as 106928. It was sold to TAR in January 1972 as re-registered LV-PRX, later to become LV-JZB. In 1973 it was leased to Aerotransporte Entre Rios and in November 1978 it was sold to its final owner ALAS Uruguay Cargo and registered CX-BKD.
Regrettably it was destroyed after the right main gear failed on landing at Montevideo-Carrasco airport, Uruguay on 10th October 1979, with no fatalities. After touchdown the aircraft tended to veer to the right and the right main gear slowly collapsed. The right wing struck the ground, causing the Canadair plane to veer right off the side of the runway. The left gear and nose gear immediately sank in soft ground next to the runway; the aircraft thus came to rest with the tail and part of the left wing still on the runway. Lack of aircraft recovery equipment at Carrasco made it impossible to remove the aircraft from the runway. Engines, instruments and other equipment were removed and the tail and nose were cut off. The remainder was then set alight.
