Aircraft Movements & Photo Update

As noted in yesterday's posts, MSN 106 C-FGQH of West Coast Air has recently transitioned from floats to wheels. Thanks to BCAvpics, for the photo below:

Although it isn't unusual for West Coast Twin Otters to appear on wheels during the slow winter months, we're guessing that MSN 106 will perhaps be the second unit to pass through Ikhana Group's rehabilitation process. It departed Vancouver, BC earlier this morning (20-Dec-2012)

 557 - DHC-6-300 PK-BRR PT Aviastar Mandiri, Jakarta
Returned to Unknown Destination Services Pty Ltd., Gold Coast, QLD 14-Dec-2012 as VH-AQU.
MSN 557 spent the first 29 years with a single operator in Venezuela before being acquired by BBS Aircraft in 2008. It was rebuilt at Airdrie, AB between 2008-2009 and in June 2011 it was ferried by Planes & Parts Ltd. from Saskatoon to Jakarta, Indonesia for lease to Aviastar Mandiri.
It has been offered for sale for most of 2012 by Unknown Destination Services with a TT of only 2725 hrs.
