Douglas Holland Notes:
This picture was taken in 1986, yet most sources indicate that Air Charter Systems (ACS) was not founded until 1987 and was a very short lived all Cargo Airline, which once it ceased operating in 1988, it was reborn as International Cargo Charter (ICC), which operated from 1998 until 2003.

What is slightly interesting is that the during its period of Operation with ACS, Transport Canada show C-FCWW as being owned by the Soundair Corporation. Soundair was at the time was embarking on a period of aggressive expansion with the founding of Commuter Express (Air Toronto as of 1988 see: Air Toronto Notes ) re-branding its original Airline Operation to Soundair Express and then forming Odyssey International in 1988 (see Odyssey International Notes ). Soundair succumbed to commercial pressures in March 1990.
