With the STC certification of the Garmin G950 Integrated Flight Deck completed for the Twin Otter, C-GKPV should now be able to depart Calgary fairly soon. It has been noted flying over the past few days. Although the aircraft was painted in full PT Air Born (Indonesia) colours some time ago, it will instead be going to SVG Air in Saint Vincent shortly.

Again via contribution this morning from a decidedly chilly looking Anadyr, Russia is Series 400 C-GVZQ (MSN 881) operating for locally based Chukotavia, in full Aurora colours.

Lastly, again via reader contribution (keep it going folks!) some nice scenic shots from Peru of a couple of Twin Otters; Series 300 OB-1704 (which just became 8Q-TAD with TMA) and Series 400 OB-2024.

The photos of OB-1701 below were taken at Pata de Gallo, Peru, which sits at an altitude of 13,720 feet and serves the Lagunas Norte Mine. The first & second photo clearly show the slope of the runway.
