This decal sheet from Thunderbird Models includes markings for a choice of one of five Boeing 737-200 in Nordair livery in an attractive blue and white scheme.

Nordair was a Canadian Quebec-based regional airline founded in 1947 from the merger of Boreal Airways and Mont Laurier Aviation and operated until 1987 when they were purchased by Canadian Pacific Air Lines.

One of the 737's on this sheet CF-GNDR has the name Terry Fox under the cockpit side windows.  Terry Fox was a 1 legged cancer victim that set off to run across Caanda to raise money for cancer research in the early 1980's.  halfway through the run Terry came down with lung cancer and eventually succumbed to his cancer.  His parents went on to set up the Terry Fox foundation and that foundation has raised over 700 million dollar to fund cancer research. 

The instructions are clear and include 3 views.  The decals are printed on 1 decal sheet.  The N on the tail is transparent, which is smart.

It's good to see this sheet featuring another Canadian Airline and I quite like the addition of the Terry Fox markings. 

You can buy this decal sheet and many other decals and other modelling products from Thunderbird Models.
