Chalks Oceanic Airways

Wed Jun 26, 2002 6:57 am

Does anyone have any infomation on Chalks. Their website says they have 17 Turbo Mallards...but I have a recent book that says they only have 3...and I have heard rumors they have 5. I know at one time they did have a dozen or so Turbo Mallards. If they got rid of them...where did they go. Are they parked? Sold? Scrapped? I know it changed hands again not so long ago.

I flew them once, from Paradise Island to the Ocean Terminal in Miami. Great fun!!

I believe that the Mallards were put into storage due to the very high cost of carrying out an AD on the main spar.
