Unsold airplane costing Alberta $500 a week
from Calgary Herald
The last unsold airplane in the Alberta government's executive fleet is costing the province $500 a week to maintain on top of the unspecified costs of leasing a hangar, says the NDP government. Taxpayers are footing the bill for general operational maintenance of the Dash-8 plane that didn't sell with the three other, smaller aircraft that sold for $6.1 million last winter, said Cheryl Oates, a spokeswomen for Premier Rachel Notley. The reserve price on the 36-passenger 1985 Dash-8 is $5.5 million.
