Hello fellow a.netters!
Just wondering if anybody knows the regular routes Merpati operates their CASA CN-235s on? I have heard they are used on flights out of Medan on Sumatra? I'm trying to bag this type before they are retired.

I waited for a while if someone else would come with a more detailed answer before replying.
Last time the MZ CN-235 was seen flying was in december 2008, PK-MNC and PK-MNE were based in Medan afaik. I also saw one flying when I were in Bali in september 2008. But since then both aircraft have been seen wfu and routes taken over by the MA-60s. In time tables or booking engines some of their earlier types of them show up now and then but the CN-235s, F-27s and F-28s are all wfu for a few years already.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
