As MSN 27 N227WW departed the Skydive Chicago dropzone on 21-Apr-2015 en route to Mexico for Skydive Cuautla, MSN 223 N223AL departed Mexico en route to Skydive Chicago as a replacement for it.

Skydive Chicago is currently utilizing some leased capacity while repairs are undertaken to N30EA and N70EA following their incident at Sebastian, FL back in Feb-2015.

The aircraft can be seen below during 2013 when it was operation for Parachutisme NouvelAir in Farnham, QC.

838 - DHC-6-300 DQ-KVV Air Kaibu, Fiji

01-May-2015


  • Noumea-La Tontouta, New Caledonia (NWWW/NOU) - Gold Coast, QLD (YBCG/OOL)


The Kaibu Resort Twin Otter DQ-KVV has recently departed Fiji for New Caledonia, and yesterday had filed to continue on to Coolangatta/Gold Coast in the Australian state of Queensland. It appears however that at least for now, the aircraft remained in Noumea, likely due to local weather conditions in Queensland.

DQ-KVV normally operates guest transfer flights between Nadi and the Kaibu Vatuvara Resort. It can be seen below in a photograph from 2012.
