Given delivery is not planned for another three months B must not be in any rush to get it ready. If it’s indeed painted I’m surprised no images are to be seen on line. That aircraft...

C5 should be ending the prop service out of EWR Nov 1. I'd guess a few will begin to leave just prior to then. The props will continue to operate routes out of IAD until Feb 2018.
