Highlands & Islands Series 400 Exits the Paint Shop

917 - DHC-6-400 C-GLVA Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC


  • Spokane, WA (KGEG/GEG) - Victoria, BC (CYYJ/YYJ)

Certainly one of the nicest looking Twin Otters to emerge from the paint shop in Spokane is MSN 917 C-GLVA. The aircraft is for Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd. (HIAL) of Inverness, Scotland and the St. Andrews Cross colour scheme is certainly reminiscent of the old Highland Express Boeing 747 G-HIHO. 

MSN 917 will operate in Scotland on Public Service Obligation routes, on a contract that is currently held by Loganair until 31-Mar-2015. You'll note that the "Operated by" inscription on the nose remains blank as the contractor post 31-Mar-2015 has not yet been determined.
