C-FFNT exits Ikhana, HB-LUC transits Egypt to Switzerland & a Trio of White Aircraft

226 - DHC-6-200HG™ C-FFNT Gravitas Aviation Ltd., West Vancouver, BC


  • Murrieta-French Valley, CA (F70) - Saint George, UT (KSGU/SGU)
  • Saint George, UT (KSGU/SGU) - 

It looks like C-FFNT left Ikhana yesterday, after having been present there since 27-Jul-2014 undergoing preparation for delivery to the Maldives. Today, at the time of writing the aircraft is southwest of Provo, UT. and will require at least one other en route stop before reaching destination in Calgary, AB.

  • Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt (HESH/SSH) - Altenrhein, Switzerland (LSZR/ACH)

I mentioned HB-LUC in the blog entry for 22-Oct-2014 when it was officially reinstated on the Swiss register, however it is now actually returning to Switzerland from Indonesia. The aircraft had been with PT Air Born since Oct-2012.

J8-GAA recently shed its orange, blue and white scheme in favor of  overall white, similar to the rest of the SVG Air fleet.

Rounding out the trio of white airplanes, Hevilift's P2-KSW positioned down to Cairns, QLD on the 21-Nov-2014, and returned back to Port Moresby (via Horn Island) the following day. P2-KSW was acquired from AirlinesPNG about this time last year.
