After many years on the market, N78691 has been sold to Renfro’s Alaskan Adventures in Bethel, Alaska. A Mk VI, serial 637 will join the fleet on floats and the plan is to have it formally in service later this summer.
CF-SAN, serial N29-29 is now privately registered to “Buffalo Joe” McBryan. Previously commercially registered to Buffalo Airways this Mk V model was a star at the Norseman “Diamond Jubilee” festival in 1995.
The Red Lake and area Norseman population remains healthy with both CF-JIN and CF-KAO getting prepared for float season at Chimo Air on Howey bay. Recently, finding a propeller for JIN had put its future in doubt but apparently this issue has been resolved. Also, Mk IV C-FFUU will be hauling supplies into Birch Lake Lodge for the 2016 summer tourist season.
