This 1972 built, US registered (Air-Serv International, Warrenton, VA) Twin Otter served the UNHCR in Chad. The Twotter was once registered VP-FAQ and painted in an all red color scheme while serving the British Antarctic Survey. It also flew in Norway as LN-FKB. But since 1988 it was registered to Air Serve and flew quite along time through the African continent. In 2013 it returned to USA and was eventually sold to a Mexican (XT-UTK) operator but is now back to its birthing-grounds, Canada as C-FZDQ flying out of Calgery.
This Twin Otter was owned by the French Air Force and operated on behalf of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in Sinai. It has been destroyed during a dramatic crash on 6 May 2007 in Sinai during a flight between El Gora Air Base and Santa Katarina (SKV). It is supposed the pilot attempted an emergency landing on a road but collided with a truck and crashed. Unfortunately all the 9 persons on board perished. RIP.
