617 C-GKBR Caribbean Bound, 921 C-GVAT at Springbank Along with BAS and Golden Knights

617 - DHC-6-300 C-GKBR Kenn Borek Air, Calgary, AB


  • Calgary, AB (CYYC/YYC) - Williston, ND (KISN/ISN)
  • Willison, ND (KISN/ISN) - Spencer, IA (KSPW/SPW)
  • Spencer, IA (KSPW/SPW) - Cape Girardeau, MO (KCGI/CGI)

C-GKBR has departed Calgary this morning on its return back to San Juan-based Seaborne Airlines. It had been present in Calgary since early Mar-2015 for maintenance work, and was rolled out in revised Seaborne colours (sans titles) in the past few days.

While C-GKBR was away in Canada Seaborne had received MSN 339 C-GOKB from Kenn Borek instead, and once C-GKBR arrives back in the Caribbean it should allow for either C-GOKB or MSN 287 C-GKBV to come back to Canada.
