Aircraft Movements & Photo Update

After a fairly quiet few days, there is still a bit of catching up to do:

321 - DHC-6-300 C-GLKB Kenn Borek Air, Calgary, AB

Canadian registration cancelled 04-Oct-2013 to TC-...  This aircraft was positioned to Turkey in the early part of Sep-2013.

883 - DHC-6-400 C-GFAP Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC

10-Oct-2013 local date

  • Kuala Lumpur-Int'l., Malaysia (WMKK/KUL) - Kuching, Malaysia (WBGG/KCH)
  • Kuching, Malaysia (WBGG/KCH) - Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia (WBKK/BKI)

The delivery of C-GFAP to MASwings has now been completed, and the aircraft has been handed over to the customer in Kota Kinabalu. This is the second Series 400 for MASwings, and the third aircraft will be ready for delivery shortly.
The next step will be the de-registration of C-GFAP in Canada, and the application of local marks in Malaysia.

During its stay in Kuala Lumpur, the aircraft was part of a ceremony marking the trade relationship between Canada and Malaysia. It can be seen in the picture below with Viking President, David Curtis (L) and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper (R).
