Aircraft Update for 17-Apr-2016

Not necessarily warranting their own blog entries, two surveyors are on the move this morning; Rampart Aviation's N344CS (MSN 334) is currently en route from Colorado Springs to Winslow, AZ and Sander Geophysics C-GSGF (MSN 642) has departed base in Ottawa, ON heading to St. John's, NL. Down under, work continues on preparing DHC-6-200 VH-XFM to depart from Cairns, QLD with the aircraft hoping to depart to Honiara, Solomons early next week. Once it actually departs from Queensland, I'll add a regular blog entry for its trip to North America.
