C295’s on delivery to USA

Post by michel N »

Today three C295W (N291LH, N292LH, N293LH) have left Sevilla today heading for Lajes on delivery to the US. Owner according to FAA is Dallas Jacks.
Anymore info on their destination? They are in “military grey” colors, therefor likely not for civilian use?

The address for the "Dallas Jacks" is in Greenville (Texas). It is also the same address as L-3 Systems, which has large facilities at the airport there. It's pretty likely the aircraft are getting some kind of modifications at Greenville.
Cheers,

Dallas Jacks is a program manager at L3 in Greenville, TX.

Do you know if they left Sevilla as Casa 989 as a flight of 3?

Just a thougt from my end. Could they be replacements for the current AFSOC CN.235s fleet? After mods, transferred to the air force (SOC)?

Hi Tally,
I am listening into Santa Maria 8.906 and hear AED989(FL210) & AED991(FL200).AED is the AirbusMil c/s.I think I can confirm the CASA989 callsign.

edit:AED988 is the missing one.

Thank you. They arrived at St Johns, Canada today. The flight from Lajes to St Johns (1450 nm) too 7 hrs and 20 min. From St Johns to Greenville Majors Field is another 2400 nm so I imagine an early next week arrival.

CASA988 didn't go with the others. For some reason it went first to Getafe (LEGT) and after a brief stop left for LPLA.
Wearing tempo spanish register EC-003 and taped N291LH so it can be quickly changed for next leg.
N291LH...msn 188

All three arrived at Majors Field, Greenville, TX Dec 19, 2020.

And kid you not Dallas Jacks himself was present to welcome and inspect the aircraft upon arrival.

Recently a C295W has been seen in the USA with serial 70601 at GSO (Piedmont Triad Airport), arriving from Pope AAF. Probably one of these three “civilian” C295’s.

Interesting. Would you have a link to a picture, or is it a sighting only?
