On the Move

239 - DHC-6-300 N239Z Carson Helicopters Inc., Grants Pass, OR

Flew New Castle, DE (KILG) to Muscle Shoals, AL (KMSL) 12-May-2012. This is actually the first time I have seen N239Z appear since starting the blog. Historically it seems to spend most of it's time abroad.

339 - DHC-6-300 C-GOKB Kenn Borek Air Ltd., Calgary, AB

Flew St. John's, NL (CYYT) to Santa Maria, Azores (LPAZ) 12-May-2012 with a planned enroute time of 9 hrs & 30 mins. Our last published record of  'OKB was on 01-Apr-2012 heading from Calgary to Hay River, Cambridge Bay & Resolute Bay.

The travels of C-GOKB in the past four months are a good indicator of the global nature of Kenn Borek's business. This aircraft was in Antarctica in February, in Canada's Arctic by April, and in Africa by May.

611 - DHC-6-300 C-FBKB Kenn Borek Air Ltd., Calgary, AB

As covered in previous posts, Kenn Borek's C-FBKB has been involved in a Trans-Pacific delivery flight to Air Borneo (dba Air Born).

This is the second Twin Otter known to have gone to the new Indonesian operator; in December 2011 MSN 576 N54LM was acquired from CAAMS LLC of Rutherfordton, NC & it flew via Salinas, Honolulu and Majuro on 27-Dec-2011, and Pohnpei (PTPN)-Manado (RPMD) on 29-Dec-2011. Thanks to MRC Aviation for adding to the flight routing.

C-FBKB DHC-6-300 MSN 611 at Honolulu (PHNL) on
delivery 05-May-2012.
