Morocco's Third CL-415 Delivered via Manchester

RSS

Morocco ordered three more CL-415 water-bombers in March 2011 following delivery of their first in February of the same year. The second aircraft was delivered quickly in May 2011 but the third seems to have suffered a lengthy delay. Having been painted and photographed at St. John's, Canada in June 2012, the aircraft only made it across the Atlantic this week. Routing via Goose Bay, Narsarsuaq and Keflavik, the high-visibility twin turboprop arrived at Manchester on 23rd February, prior to continuing South via Malaga to Morocco.

Manchester has been the preferred European stop-off location for the Canadian-built amphibians for many years, with the airport having a Bombardier service center on site. Morocco's fourth aircraft may be delivered this year, having been painted at Muskoka in December 2012.
