Aircraft Movements - Photo Update

94 - DHC-6-200 C-GQKN West Coast Air, Richmond, BC

As can be seen in the photo below, C-GQKN has returned from painting by Upper Valley Aviation in Chilliwack, resplendent in the new scheme which reflects their ownership by Harbour Air. Thanks to BCAvpics for getting the shot.

MSN 94 - DHC-6-200 C-GQKN
West Coast Air
Vancouver, BC 17-Dec-2012

106 - DHC-6-100 C-FGQH West Coast Air, Richmond, BC

Floats removed and placed on wheels in the past few days, so this would suggest that it is the next aircraft to be flown down to Murietta CA for the Ikhana conversion package.

239 - DHC-6-300 N239Z Gravitas Aviation Ltd./Bank of Utah Trustee, Salt Lake City, UT

The trail on N239Z is getting a little muddy with conflicting information, however here is what the official records indicate; after initially going into the "sale reported" category by 16-Dec-2012, the U.S. registration was cancelled 17-Dec-2012 to Antigua & Barbuda. It was also officially recorded as sold to Eastern Caribbean Airways on 17-Dec-2012. Gravitas Aviation are still indicating it on a three-year lease to SVG Air of Saint Vincent.

870 - DHC-6-400 C-GVVA Viking Air Ltd., Sydney, BC

12-Dec-2012 as VKN870

  • Calgary, AB (CYYC) - Victoria, BC (CYYJ)

C-GVVA hasn't (so far) been photographed, however considering it was ferried from Calgary direct to Victoria, one would suspect it is perhaps still unpainted.

 871 - DHC-6-400 C-FMJO Viking Air Ltd., Sydney, BC

Noted outside and/or test flying from Calgary on 9-13 & 16/17-Dec-2012
