Hawaiian Caravan, anyone?

Recommended Posts

Kreg (pd400) asked me to have a look at repainting the Caravan in the colors of his employer, Mokulele Airlines. There are a few good examples on airliners.net, so I dove into the project yesterday. It's not nearly done yet, but the trickiest of the alignments have been done to the stripes and such. He's getting me some more close-up shots of a few details so I can bring dis braddah home soon.

Sir, that is a fantastic job you're doing! Hope to see it in the library soon! :(
Thanks! I'm waiting on one more pic from Kreg before I finish. Once it's done, I'll put it on my blog and publicize the link as always.

Okay, it's ready to download! It's a good thing I had Kreg (pd400) to help me out. It turns out they removed the Kapalua logo from the tails. Here's the final version:As usual, you can download the paint from the Freeware section of my blog. Shoots!

I don't think so. That was an old scheme and I didn't particularly like it. When Kreg said they'd canned it, I was overjoyed.

Thanks for this repaint! Don't they use the callsign speedbuggy, and if so does anyone know where I can download an editvoicepack file for that?

And does Mokulele even exist anymore? I don't see any photos in the db of their C208s

I hope they exist, or Kreg will have a rude surprise when he reports to work tomorrow. :(

Yep, we sure do. The E-Jets were an abomination of our greedy President that wanted jets so bad, he went from Caravans to JETS! And what happened, he bankrupted us. Republic still owns the Caravan operation, but Mesa (go!) owns the rights to our name, passengers, etc.Mokulele AIrlines IS the Caravan operation. The Jets, the Go Merger, are not. We have been, and always will be Mokulele (unless we get bought out).As for the awful callsign, you're right, it is "Speedbuggy" which is awful to say on the radio. This particular plane would be "Speedbuggy One Four" as it's listed with the FAA.Kreg
