Photos - Osprey Wings, Transwest Air and Bradley Air Services


Received a nice series of photographs from Dale Tiedeman, and the first three are presented below. C-GPVQ has a colourful past, and looks pretty spectacular for an aircraft that has seen fourteen previous operators, including ten in Canada alone. The aircraft was originally delivered in 1968.

C-FPGE is seen below, photographed last summer in La Ronge. This aircraft has recently received the new Transwest Air corporate colour scheme, which was rolled out in Mar-2015.

I have completed the scanning of another 1,200 slides from the collection of Ken Swartz, and below are a couple of  Twin Otters from Bradley Air Services, taken at their old Carp, ON base in 2002 and 1989 respectively.

MSN 373 C-FASG went to Kenn Borek in 2012, and is currently flying from Saint Maarten as PJ-WIO. Below that is MSN 507 C-GPJB which went through several owners after Bradley, eventually ending up in New Caledonia, where it today flies with Air Loyauté as F-OIAY.
