Aircraft Update for 18-Mar-2016


One item that had escaped me was the transfer of Hevilift's P2-KSW to the Solomon Islands earlier this month. I simply hadn't picked up on the fact it had Solomons titles added in Cairns - so herewith are the details:

703 - DHC-6-300 P2-KSW Hevilift PNG, Waigani

Updating the blog entry for 12-Feb-2016; aircraft arrived in Cairns, QLD from Port Moresby on 11-Feb-2016. On 03-Mar-2016 it was noted again, still all white, however now with black Solomons titles. On 05-Mar-2016 it flew Cairns, QLD - Gurney, PNG - Gizo, Solomon Islands on delivery to Solomon Airlines. 

Solomons DHC-6-300 H4-SID (MSN 442) has been in Cairns, QLD since arriving from Gurney and Honiara on 29-Sep-2015.
