Aircraft Update for 14-Sep-2016



831 - DHC-6-300 C-GKVN Unity Group Ltd., Airdrie, AB

Registered 14-Sep-2016, ex N831WJ.  Acquired from CAAMS Leasing via Gravitas Aviation, and was expected to be delivered via road transport from North Carolina to Airdrie.



Below is an aircraft that had remained in the gray "unknown" category over at Twin Otter Archive, so it is great to finally be able to actually tie it up, with some pictures.


XC-BOS was delivered to the Procuraduría General de la República in Dec-1976. It remained in service with the PGR through 2005, and was noted stored at their Mexico City facility by Mar-2006.

In Nov-2012 the aircraft was transported via road to Academia Aeronáutica CECyT-7 Cuauhtémoc as seen in the first photo below. The facility is located in the Iztapalapa district of Mexico City.

The aircraft was then partially reassembled, and placed outside at the same campus. It is seen in the following three photos after reassembly.
