U.S. and Canadian Register Updates



805 - DHC-6-300 N805WJ CAAMS LLC, Wilmington, DE

Registered 28-Oct-2014

N805WJ was previously operated by Nature Air, and crashed on approach to Tamarindo, Costa Rica on 16-Dec-2005. The aircraft was recovered and acquired by CAAMS LLC in Aug-2006 for rebuild and sale.



872 - DHC-6-400 N901VK Bank of Utah Trustee, Salt Lake City, UT (Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC)

Registration cancelled 28-Oct-2014 and officially imported to Canada 28-Oct-2014



885 - DHC-6-400 N902VK Bank of Utah Trustee, Salt Lake City, UT (Viking Air Ltd., Sidney, BC)

Registration cancelled 28-Oct-2014 and officially imported to Canada 28-Oct-2014

Again, another instance of paperwork having to catch up with the aircraft, as occurred with MSN 867 back in Jun-2014.

Both of the aircraft above were delivered to the Vietnam Navy in Aug/Sep-2014 direct from the U.S.A. by contractor Southern Cross Aviation, and became VNT-771 and VNT-778 respectively. The import below ties up the official records to show the export to Vietnam is from Canada. There had always been continuous ownership by Viking, even while registered in the U.S. under the trustee.
