Aircraft Movements


52 - DHC-6-100 N52FW Kapowsin Air Sports, Shelton, WA


  • Shelton, WA (KSHN) - Calgary, AB (CYYC)
Looking at the track inbound to Calgary, it appears as though the aircraft has likely continued on to Springbank, AB (CYBW) after a brief stop of about an hour in Calgary.

120 - DHC-6-200 N718KW Warren Transportation LLC, Dallas, TX


  • Veracruz, Mexico (MMVR) - Brownsville, TX (KBRO)
  • Brownsville, TX (KBRO) - Addison, TX (KADS)

N718KW is returning to the U.S. as it arrives Brownsville, TX today before continuing on to Addison, TX. Normally based at the Warren-owned island of Barbareta, Honduras (near Roatan) the aircraft returned to Texas this time last year as well. In 2012 it arrived from Veracruz on 13-Feb-2012 and departed back to Honduras on 03-Mar-2012.

Certainly one of the sharpest looking -200 series around.

As noted in the blog entry for 19-Dec-2012, N239Z was cancelled from the U.S. register on 17-Dec-2012 to Antigua & Barbuda.

272 - DHC-6-300 C-GBEB Ashe Aircraft Enterprises Ltd., Calgary, AB

Registered 22-Jan-2013

As can be seen in the photo below, C-GBEB has been under a lengthy rebuild by Rocky Mountain Aircraft at Springbank. The aircraft stalled and crashed into trees on approach to Hook Lake, NT on 16-Jul-2008.

Given the recent registration again, it is presumably nearing completion.
