West Coast Goose

Post by longjon » Mon Oct 22, 2012 7:24 pm

Does anyone know the registration of the remaining Goose with Picific Coastal? I understand they are for sale etc lack of parts T.C. hassles. How many were flying and what are the regs?

I reacall NIF, UAZ, UMG, UVJ, flying the coast not necessarily for PCA and one more Reg, slips my memory. VAK

Hi Bronson, I searched the Canadian Aircraft Registry and NIF's C of R was cancelled in 1994 by Pasco and then cancelled by Hallmark Leasing Corporation in 1998.

I also saw that prior to Pacific Coastal, Jimmy Pattison Industries owned it followed by Air BC, which makes sense.

There was nothing in there for UMG, UVJ or UVK...perhaps the online registry doesn't go back far enough?

Does anyone know a good site for searching aircraft history via serial numbers or something along those lines?

I think it was DDJ that used to belong to Fidel Castro or something....and also featured in "Endless Summer 2"

I think I saw NIF at the south terminal (YVR) since 98 but I could be wrong. There were some good Goose sites on the net but they aren't in my bookmarks anymore. I'll have another look and post urls if I find any.
