2 x T-6C Delivered to FAC

Two T-6Cs (FAC2350 & FAC2351) were recently delivered from Wichita, KS plant to Colombian AF.
IIRC stopovers included Amarillo (KAMA) and Brownsville, TX. Does anyone know civil reg. tie-ups?

Re: VMM-212 (MV-22B) Activation Moved From FY19 to FY21

Per the gonavy.jp site, apparently activation has again been moved back, this time to 4Q FY22. Probably to allow for completion of
CMV-22Bs.
