Two More for Nature Air, C-FUGT Arrives Male, New Ident for C-GYXF & Downsview 1969



Going back to the blog entry for 10-Nov-2014, N72GC and N178GC  were actually departing on a lease as I had suggested, although it took a couple days for the information to become available. The aircraft departed the U.S. from Brownsville, TX on 12-Nov-2014, for Veracruz - and although we lose track of them past that point, they would have likely made two more stops before arriving in San Jose-Pavas, Costa Rica on delivery to Nature Air. They can be seen below on arrival yesterday.

As noted in the blog entry for 07-Nov-2014, the Canadian registration was cancelled that same day; it is now known the aircraft has become 8Q-TAD with Trans Maldivian, and it expected to enter service soon. This information does not yet appear on the Maldivian CAA listing.
