This Challenger was the first of four to carry registration N529DM, which was changed to N529D (as pictured here) when N529DM was assigned to CL604 c/n 5575 (see previous picture), and later to CL605 cn 5711 and cn 5880! A bit confusing to say the least, and a good sample that serious research is needed at times....

In 2003 and 2004, the Government of Madagascar contracted at least two companies to carry out seismic surveys throughout the so called "red" island. FUGRO was one of them, which had this australian registered Aero Commander sent over to Madagascar. This very aircraft was built in 1970 and was on the australian register for all it's life, before being withdrawn from use in 2008 and consequently broken up. See photo ID 326405 for another aircraft being used for seismic surveys in Madagascar at the same time.

5R-MKT was the second AS-350 to join the Helimission fleet in 1985, back then as HB-XPN. It was based in Cameroon between 1986 and 1997. It spent a few years in Switzerland before being transferred to Madagascar, where it is stationed since 2004. In 2006, it was upgraded to the BA version by Panterra in Canada.

A nice surprise visitor to TNR was this German AF Challenger, one of seven operated by the GAF to transport ministers and high ranking military personnel between 1984 and 2011. This particular airframe was sold to Canadian operator Air Tindi in December 2011 and now carries registration C-FTDA. Five more aircraft were sold to civilian operators as well, while ex 1203 is now being operated by the Gambian AF as C5-AFT.

Besides it's shorter C208 Caravan 1 5R-MKD, MAF Madagascar operated this Grand Caravan for just over two years between December 2007 and January 2010. However, it proved to be too big and was therefore transferred to MAF's flight program in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and has been registered there as 9Q-CMZ. Initially and after being built in 2000, this airframe was on the FAA register as N805AA.

Air Madagascar - till 2012 a staunch Boeing customer as far as jetliners are concerned - wrote history when it started to operate this ex Air France A340 in April 2012, followed by sistership 5R-EAA (ex F-GLZT) two month later. The two planes were said to have been overpriced and linked with some safety and EASA certification issues, Air Madagascar continues to struggle financially up to this day. As a counter measure, this airframe has been registered in Island as TF-EAB (from March 2013) and Air Atlanta did operate it on behalf of Air Madagascar. Parked at the time of upload.

On behalf of the US Government, the USAF operates a handful of Hurons for diplomatic duties. Those aircraft are assigned to various US Embassies around the world and are used to transport officials around in the corresponding regions. This Huron was assigned to the US Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya when this picture was taken and got grounded in Madagascar during an offical visit due to one of it's engines producing metal chips.

This Cessna 206 was based at Maun, Botswana at the time this picture was taken. However, it has been chartered by the Government of Madagascar for seismic surveys throughout the "red" island, hence the two wingtip-mounted pods carrying the corresponding sensors to do so. FUGRO was another company hired to conduct seismic surveys in 2003 and 2004.

Tiko was the company of Marc Ravalomanana, a successful business man and Madagascar's president between 2002 and 2009. Tiko was active in the food industry, and from 2001 this CN235 was used to distribute the locally manufactured dairy prodcuts throughout Madagascar. However, being one of the oldest CN235, it encountered a lot of technical issues with its Garrett engines, and was therefore sold on to Presidental Airways in the US in 2006. Still active with AAR Airlift Group as N1269J at the time of upload. Tiko Air replaced 5R-MKM with an ATR-42 registered 5R-MJT.
