In spite of current government spending on Covid-19 and other military priorities like the fighter replacement or shipbuilding, wouldn’t this be an excellent time to pick up a half dozen used Airbus A-330’s on the civilian market to replace the aging CC-150 fleet? With airlines grounding massive numbers of aircraft it would seem likely that good deals on used civilian airframes/powerplants could be made. I seem to remember that the CC-150's were purchased on the used market from a bankrupt Canadian airline. Is it time to replace the Polaris with something more modern and easier to maintain?
