C-GALU (msn 726), a DHC-6-300 Twin Otter is ferrying though HNL on its way back to Canada, from Papua New Guinea. The flight began from AYTK [Tokua Airport, Rabaul, PNG], and has made stops at MAJ and HNL, and will depart for LMT [Crater Lake-Klamath Falls, Oregon] tomorrow, then onto YYC, where the owner is identified as Gravitas Aviation Ltd.

726 was originally delivered to Austin Airways [Canada] in November 1980 as  C-GCVZ, and was leased to Air Creebec from June 1982 to February 1985. It was sold to Pakistan International Airlines in the same month as AP-BCG "Mangla Dam", and served until September 2006. Emerald Aviation [New Guinea] acquired this Twin Otter in March 2007 as N726JM, then as P2-EMO. Airlines PNG took ownership of P2-EMO in April 2008.
