N135GU (msn 340A-135), a Saab SF340A/QC, acquired by Skydive Guam, is making its ferry flight from INT (Smith Reynolds Airport, Winston-Salem, NC) to GUM, via MQY, DUX, CHD, MCE, JRF, and MAJ. It's making its overnight stop at JRF tonight. It departed INT on the 24th, and is expected to reach GUM on the 31st.

340A-135 was originally delivered to Finnaviation in November 1988 as OH-FAD. When Finnair merged with Finnaviation, OH-FAD was transferred to the Finnair fleet. In March 2000, it was sold to Flying Enterprise AB (Sweden) as SE-KCU, then transferred to the Skyways Enterprise fleet in October 2001. In September 2005, it was sold to Sky Express (Poland) as SP-KPF. In March 2008, Sky Express re-branded itself into SprintAir, and also became an all-cargo carrier, with their SF340 fleet converted to a Quick Change interior. Skydive Guam acquired this SF340 in October 2015, and had the skydiving modifications done at INT.
