Additional Historical Information

By Nov-2015 the lease to PT Air Born was in default, and the aircraft was de-registered in Indonesia at the request of the lessor. It was grounded in Balikpapan while the lessor attempted to recover the aircraft & bring it back to Canada. Before that could occur, the aircraft was stripped of essential parts by the lessee, preventing it from leaving, and so began a lengthy case working its way through the Indonesian justice system.
