Aircraft Movements

518 - DHC-6-300 C-GSOZ Kenn Borek Air, Calgary, AB

Canadian registration cancelled 30-Apr-2013 - however no export country indicated on record.

I suspect that it will re-join the Canadian register shortly to Planes & Parts Ltd. who will undertake the ferry delivery to Indonesia for PT Air Born.

N223AL left Canada last year in October following operation by Parachutisme NouvelAir, and positioned to a warmer home in the southeastern U.S. We last covered it back in December 2012 as it moved from Brownsville, TX into Mexico. where it remained until late January, 2013.
 
The move north to Canada has taken place again over the past several days as it departed Brownsville on 22-Apr-2013, and arriving in Bromont, QC in the early hours of 27-Apr-2013.

Aircraft Movements

272 - DHC-6-300 C-GBEB Ashe Aircraft Enterprises, Calgary, AB

Test flown at Springbank, AB 23/24-Apr-2013 following lengthy rebuild. This aircraft crashed on approach to Hook Lake, NT on 16-Jul-2008, and was subsequently registered initially to Beau Del Leasing in Jan-2009, and then transferred to Ashe Aircraft themselves on 22-Jan-2013 as the rebuild neared completion.
 
Once test flying is completed the aircraft will likely need to be repainted, prior to delivery to its new Canadian operator.
 
 
647 - DHC-6-300 TG-JCA Aero Ruto Maya S.A., Guatemala City
 
Registered to Bank of Utah Trustee, Salt Lake City, UT 24-Apr-2013 as N360CM on return to CAAMS LLC, Rutherfordton, NC.  This aircraft has been flying in Guatemala since early 2009 for Aero Ruto Maya, serving the Marlin gold mine owned by Canadian company Goldcorp.

It has since been resold to Air Kiribati. The press release from CAAMS can be found here.

Watch List #4


The Watch List serves as a reminder (mostly to myself) of the airframes that are currently known to be undergoing some kind of transition, and will likely have a change to record soon. Particularly with the rebuilds it is easy to lose track of an airplane that has been hangared and unseen for many months.

Back at it again after having a computer failure on Monday morning, which resulted in several days work to begin rebuilding things. Although with 25+ years of having a computer this is luckily the first catastrophic failure I've experienced, I have also determined you can never back-up everything you will need.
 
The Watch List will be updated tomorrow (Friday). On to the news:

It appears that G-ISSG has finally resumed it's delivery flight to the U.K. after a several day break in Churchill, MB. One has to assume that the delay in completing this next leg of the flight relates to either weather, wind or alternates.

We've just added this one to Twin Otter Archive as well; the existing files for the history of MSN 212 don't show this lease, and consequently it was a surprise to find this picture. AirExec was based at Ocean City, Maryland, flying from the metropolitan DC area to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and Ocean City. The Twin Otter was operated for just the summer of 1973, and at the end of the season it was sold to ERA Helicopters in Anchorage.

Photo Update

Thanks to Brian Maddison in Victoria for this "hot off the press" first shot of MSN 875 in the colours of Hevilift, of Papua New Guinea. It carries the registration P2-KSY under tape.

The aircraft taxis in at Victoria about an hour ago, on arrival from the Spokane paint shop.
