153 - DHC-6-200 N153KD Alberta Aircraft Leasing Inc., Las Vegas, NV
Flew Springbank-Great Falls-Ogden (as noted in earlier post below) 08-May-2012; on 09-May-2012 it departed Ogden heading southbound. Although the track ends south of Metropolitan Phoenix, in the vicinity of the suburb of Chandler it is lined up pretty well directly for Eloy. I suspect that was the destination.
