Next Chukotavia Series 400 Arrives from Paint Shop

As mentioned in the last post for 19-Mar, MSN 919 C-GFVT was flown over to Victoria yesterday afternoon. Given the arrival time and the local weather conditions I wasn't very confident that Tim would be able to get a photograph, however he was able to get a decent shot of it taxiing in.

The aircraft carries the Russian registration RA-67286 under the Canadian sticker.

Photographed back in 2008, two of Yeti Airlines DHC-6-300's, 9N-AFA and 9N-AFE taken at Talcha Airport, Nepal by Milan Dhungana.

9N-AFA was later transferred to Yeti's affiliate Tara Air, while 9N-AFE (which had suffered two serious accidents in 2006 and 2007) sadly met its end at Lukla, Nepal exactly four months after this photo on 08-Oct-2008.

  • Salmon, ID (KSMN/SMN) - Havre, MT (KHVR/HVR)
  • Havre, MT (KHVR/HVR) - Saskatoon, SK (CYXE/YXE)
C-FASQ has filed for departure from Salmon, ID this morning bound for Havre, MT, and continuing on to Saskatoon, SK. Given the routing, I'm wondering whether it is going to either Transwest or Osprey Wings perhaps.
