740 - DHC-6-300 N48RF U.S. Department of Commerce, MacDill AFB, FL

Test flown from Springbank, AB 18-Feb-2016 and scheduled to depart to Minot, ND 22-Feb-2016 following maintenance at Rocky Mountain Aircraft.

766 - DHC-6-300 PK-FSC Spirit Avia Sentosa, Jakarta

Registered Feb-2016, ex PK-VIL; this should bring the Spirit Avia Sentosa fleet to three examples, with the other two being MSN 357 PK-FSA and MSN 454 PK-? (FSB?). 

PK-FSA and PK-FSC were originally delivered for Skycab, so I'm not exactly sure what the sequence of events was after arrival in Indonesia.
