Information Required

The following is a request from a reader, but I am also interested in knowing more if possible as well!

On Saturday 28-Jul-2012 a DHC-6 routed Reykjavik, Iceland - Vagar, Faroe Islands - Stornoway, U.K.  In trail by about 5-10 minutes on the same routing was a French Air Force C.160 Transall. Given that, it is quite possible it is also a French Air Force Twin Otter. Can anyone offer any additional information?


The aircraft has been identified as MSN 730 DHC-6-300 F-RACA/730 CA of the French Air Force, returning from duties in South America and the French Caribbean. The aircraft was scheduled to carry on today from Stornoway to Leeds/Bradford, UK (EGNM)
