This model represents the last Air Canada Boeing 747-100 Captain Clint Ward flew. Its fin number is 304; registration: CF-TOD. Refer to the decal sheet. Clint Ward is a retired Air Canada Captain. “I was born and grew up on the Canadian Prairies,” he said, “went to school in Saskatoon (Saskatchewan). Just out of high school, I signed up with the Royal Canadian Air Force and the first airplane I ever touched to learn to fly was the Harvard. After getting my Air Force Wings, I spent a summer spraying crops from a Piper J-3 Cub and then joined TransCanada Air Lines. After working with them for almost 38 years, the last 12 in command of the Boeing 747, I retired from Air Canada and spent a few years in Corporate Aviation piloting a Citation Ultra. In my 50 years as a professional aviator I never bought a gallon of gas!”
