The DHC6-300 Twin Otter, MSN 367 first rolled in 1973. Since then the aircraft primarily remained in Canada exchanging hands with various operators.

MSN 367 remained in Yellowknife withdrawn from service from 2011 to 2018 after the aircraft received damages due to a crash.

Rocky Mountain Aircraft acquired the Twin Otter and completely rebuilt the aircraft. All time-lifed components were replaced including wings, struts, and main landing gear bulkhead. Additionally, all new wiring harnesses along with a new Aero Plastics interior and new Garmin G950Nxi avionics were installed.

The Twin Otter would be flown to Manta Air base at Dhaalu Airport for the installation of floats for seaplane operations.
