Morning All

flightaware.com and skyliner-aviation.de have been reporting N904ME (to become VH-NXR) on delivery MIA-BIL-ANC as Southern Cross 918. Arrived into ANC on Monday afternoon (their) local time. Hasn't shown up with a departure out of ANC though (ANC is not showing any B717 departures at all).

Cheers
Rowan

Morning All!

N904ME (VH-NXR) is either in, or on its way to, Magadan in Russia continuing its delivery to Oz as SXA918.

Have a great Easter weekend!!

Cheers

Looks like VH-XFC is scheduled to go KUL-MEL today, arriving into Melbourne at 2320 tonight.

VH-NXR should be in the country on Sunday. It's 1st Aussie port is Darwin, then it will head down to Adelaide for pre-service checks.

Hey Stefan, yeah guessed VH-NXR would probably be heading to ADL for pre-service. Still reg'd N904ME from the info I've seen on the web, presumably until after pre-service. In any case, it landed at DRW at 6.35pm local time today... so given ADL curfew it'll probably head down there tomorrow. Will be interesting to see whether it's still with Southern Cross Aviation until it hits ADL or whether Cobham will take it from DRW themselves?
