Two Ex WestJet 737-200's @ PDX

These two planes have been parked at the Flighcraft ramp for over three weeks now. Does anybody know who bought them? Here are the new regs.

N742AP, N745AP

I believe Apollo aviation group has bought the remaining 10 -200's WS has, they bought the planes, flight simulator and all spare parts. I am not sure where Apollo is based out of so I am not sure why they are in PDX but that could be a reason.

PDX has a paint shop. Maybe they're at PDX for painting before transport to Florida?

They may have bought them in Oregon. We don't have sales tax here. Maybe they are just waiting for the financing to go through?

RampRat74, if you hear anything about when the planes will be heading out of PDX let me know. I would like to get a few shots of them.

Does anyone know if it is ok to take pics over at flightcraft?

Thanks
Zach

I will try to take some pics of them tomorrow. There isn't much to see from the Flightcraft parking lot. Their hangars and buildings block most of their ramp.
