Terry sent me a little blurb about 'Minerve Canada' which caught my interest because I had no recollection of ever seeing an aircraft with this livery.
'Minerve' was an airline based in Paris, France that operated from 1975 until 1992 when it merged with AOM to form AOM French Airlines which, in turn, ceased operations in 2001.
Minerve had ambitions to expand to North America and created the subsidiary 'Minerve Canada' in 1987. However, the experiment did not last long and the subsidiary folded by 1989.
The three aircraft used for the fleet are listed below.
Douglas DC-8-60/70 - C-FCMV delivered December 1987.
Douglas DC-8-60/70 C-GEMV delivered December 1988
McDonnell Douglas MD-83 C-GKMV delivered December 1989.
