Aircraft Movements - Viking Series 400 Delivery *Updated*

868 - DHC-6-400 C-FAFI Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC


  • Whitehorse, YT (CYXY) - Anadyr-Ugolny, Russia (UHMA)

C-FAFI has resumed its delivery flight to Indonesia today, and is currently bound for Anadyr-Ugolny, Russia with a planned flight time of 7 hrs & 39 minutes.
In looking at the weather reports for Anadyr over the past 48 hours, I'd expect that was  the cause of the delay in departure from Whitehorse.

Update: It appears that after almost crossing the Bering Strait, short of Provideniya C-FAFI has reversed course. The aircraft has now landed in Nome, AK. Presumably the weather at destination and alternates was below minimums.
