Aircraft Movements

878 - DHC-6-400 C-FGAL Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC

30-Sep-2013

  • Calgary, AB (CYYC/YYC) - Great Falls, MT (KGTF/GTF)

C-FGAL arrived in Calgary on 27-Sep-2013 and is now positioning to Great Falls, MT. The aircraft's final destination is expected to be Deland, FL where it will undergo additional modifications before delivery to the United Arab Emirates. These would be similar modifications to those currently being undertaken on MSN 876 N400GZ at Rampart Aviation in North Carolina.

C-GFAP is now en route to its first stop in Russia with a planned en route time of 6 hours and 26 minutes.

Aircraft Movements

883 - DHC-6-400 C-GFAP Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC

28-Sep-2013

  • Anchorage, AK (PANC/ANC) - Nome, AK (PAOM/OME)

Improvements in the local and en route weather have allowed C-GFAP to depart Anchorage, and the aircraft is now (at the time of writing) passing the half way mark to Nome.
 
Given the many previous transits of Anadyr on delivery flights, I'd expect that C-GFAP will spend tonight in Nome, as the Russian airport will not accept a weekend arrival. Accordingly, this would necessitate a departure from Nome no earlier than tomorrow (which of course is Monday in that part of Russia).

  • Bangor, ME (KBGR/BGR) - Jamestown, NY (KJHW/JHW)
  • Jamestown, NY (KJHW/JHW) - Aurora, IL (KARR/ARR)

After a delay of a couple days from the first filing for departure, N675BA has now left Newfoundland bound for Berry Aviation. As with the two previous Twin Otters acquired by Berry, N675BA is also positioning to Aurora, IL.
 
 
N675BA is the third Twin Otter registered to Berry since Jul-2013, the first two already having been positioned to Africa.

Registration cancelled 25-Sep-2013 to U.S.A. and registered 26-Sep-2013 to Berry Aviation Inc., San Marcos, TX. as N675BA. In hindsight, I should have picked up yesterday on the new owner by virtue of the registration.
 
In any case, the flight plan for the departure from St. John's from yesterday has now disappeared from the system as well.

The MASwings delivery flight continues to be on the ground in Anchorage, presumably awaiting an improvement in en route weather.

The two Berry Ferry flights continue today, and as this is written both aircraft are currently about midway across the Atlantic. As I suspected might be the case, a mid-Atlantic crossing is being undertaken and this would likely put their destination in Saharan Africa.

Saturday begins with three of the same aircraft that have been underway for the past few days. The two Berry Aviation machines are en route to St. John's NL (and actually are today, compared to yesterday's plan) while Sanders' C-GSGF will do the final sector back to base in Ottawa from Tunisia.

The two Berry Aviation aircraft are today continuing on their positioning ferries that are being flown by Southern Cross Aviation, as SXA1074 & SXA 1075. It is still not entirely clear whether they will route across the North Atlantic, or perhaps from St. John's to the Azores - the latter being a more direct route to their expected final destination.

Both FP's for today's flights to St. John's seem to have disappeared, so I'm not sure whether the aircraft moved from Bangor or not.

The entire delivery flight from Victoria (including tank installation in Calgary) took nine days, and was flown at altitudes ranging from FL150-FL190.

After initially filing for the same route on 17-Sep-2013 (and I hadn't noticed that it actually didn't operate) the aircraft is now airborne returning to Victoria. It had positioned over to Spokane on 14-Sep-2013, which I presume was related to additional paint work requirements after its recent return from Murrieta.

Presuming the filed flight plans are correct, both of the Berry Aviation Twin Otters are being ferried today under Southern Cross Aviation flight numbers SXA1074 & SXA1075. Both aircraft have now departed San Marcos, with the second one in trail by about 90 minutes.

I'd suspect that this is the beginning of their positioning run to the contract base.

Photo Update

As we continue to work on adding more aircraft, and more photographs to the collection over at Twin Otter Archive, here are some more samples. As quite a few of these are high serials, they probably won't be on TOA for a while. These are scans from photos rather than slides, and in most cases it has been difficult to establish the exact provenance of the photos (hence the photographer unknown) - if they are your work, please be in touch so they can be properly credited.

Maldives Update
 
With the integration of Maldivian Air Taxi and Trans Maldivian Airways, there have been some recent changes with respect to registered ownership of the aircraft. Of course it couldn't just be an easy same date, same transaction for each one. Several TMA aircraft were initially re-registered to MAT during the Mar/Apr/May-2013 period, then reverted again to TMA in Aug-2013, while others followed the same pattern without a date attached to their transfer from TMA to MAT.
