For anyone following the progress on the delivery flight for N888PV, it currently remains on the ground at McMinnville, OR (KMMV), where it had arrived on 15-Jul-2015. It is expected to continue to Indonesia shortly.

A few photos this morning as well; first off MSN 410 VQ-TVG previously operated by Air Turks & Caicos (which has subsequently become InterCaribbean Airways). This aircraft has been leased to Fiji Link since Jun-2011 as DQ-PSE.

Seen shortly after arrival in Laos in 2011, and still carrying the basic livery of its former operator (ARAMCO) MSN 593 flew for Lao Aviation until 2014 when it left for the U.S.A. It is currently for sale by Aviation Management Sales, and despite having been in service since 1978 it only has 12,418 hours TT.
