Christmas Specials

Some special guest on Christmas day. A pair of China Southern 777-21BERs flew in from CAN [Guangzhou Baiyun International], China as CSN2002 and CSN2003. B-2056 (c/n 27525, l/n 66), in the SkyTeam livery, and B-2058 (c/n 27605, l/n 110), leased from ALAFCO, are headed for storage at GYR.

Royal Jet's 737-7AK (BBJ), A6-RJX (c/n 29865, l/n 241) flew in a few days earlier and departed on the 30th to Minneapolis - St. Paul International [MSP].

Lastly, an Ex-MASwings DHC-6-310 Twin Otter which arrived on the 23rd. C-GKPG (msn 802) flew in from Kota Kinabalu International, Malaysia via Guam and the Marshall Islands. Sister-ship C-GKKN (msn 792, formerly 9M-MDK) arrived on the 29th via the Philippines, Guam, and the Marshall Islands. It departed tonight to McMinnville Municipal Airport, Oregon leaving C-GKPG behind. 802 was 9M-MDL with MASwings. It was delivered to Malaysia Airlines in July 1983. It also wore the 1990s MAS livery. In August 2006, 9M-MDL was transferred to FlyAsian Express (FAX), the predecessor to Air Asia X, as MAS transferred their regional prop fleet and operations to FAX. In October 2007, FAX ended their operations, and transferred the operations and aircraft to MASwings.
