Additional Historical Notes

Reportedly flew via Lincoln, NE; Birmingham, AL; Bimini, Bahamas and on to Havana, Cuba 07/09-May-2006

Noted repeatedly at Springbank during 2007; 29-Apr-2007 in basic SNA c/s, no titles or logos; 31-Oct-2007 & 26-Nov-2007 in full SNA c/s; then again 01-Apr-2008 in basic SNA c/s, no titles or logos. It was noted at Boundary Bay, BC 23-May-2009 in full SNA c/s.

As was the case with the previous Fort Simpson based DHC-6 operator (Simpson Air) the aircraft are difficult to track during the off season, when they are often leased out. Additional details for the period 2006 to 2009 in particular are required to complete this airframe history fully.
