Issue dated November 1983.
Air Canada's first re-engined DC-8 freighter went into service on November 8, 1983, sporting new engines that will allow it to fly into the 1990's, despite stricter anti-noise regulations being introduced internationally over the next few years. The re-engining of all six of the airline's stretched DC-8-63 cargo jets is being performed at the airline's technical center in Montreal.
Effective December 1, 1983, all passengers and crew members on inbound international flights will complete traveller declaration cards for presentation to the primary inspection line customs officer.
Air Canada retained "Tango" as a brand name for its cheapest airfare category.

Gander loves a parade.
Using the theme "step into our world", Gander employees entered their first-ever float in the Gander Day festivities. The float was built around a passenger stand and was decorated with TCA bunting, 747 inflatables, posters and clowns, a revolving globe of live Smurfs and five women wearing uniforms from the past and present.
While they did not take any honours, the group had fun participating. Even passengers passing through Gander on flight 861 had a chance to join in the festivities as Papa Smurf and his clowning friends provided a little in-flight entertainment.
Most employees pitched in to make this year’s entry and plans are already in the works for something bigger and better next year.
In our photo, pictured on the steps of the float, from the bottom: Eva Down, Dianne Milley, Lynn Paquette, Glennis Stoyles and Pauline Mackey.

Here is a memory of her career by Dee Cameron -
When l was a child I would sit by the wharf and watch the planes from Logan airport come in and take off.
Whoever thought someday I might be working for such a great airline company.
Childhood rolled into teenage by Dee Cameron -
There was high school and college went by real fast
I started with the company April of fifty-six
As I remember now had just DC threes
I'll never forget the first day in Miami
As our loads seemed to increase all over
Even though I enjoyed my stay in Miami
I returned to Boston airport in seventy six
To all of my friends in the system
Now, before I get too sentimental
