Looks like it was a fomer RCMP plane. Also appears to have been re-painted since the first foto at the top of this thread. Was registered to current company in October.
The top photo looks like it has the Colorado state flag integrated into the blue stripes… http://www.theus50.com/images/state-flags/colorado-flag.jpg
Yep…Looks like RCMP, then Aspen Base Ops, then QB Corp. this year. Looking at the post crash fire damage, and the damage in general…it’s very fortunate that there were survivors.
No kidding, those guys are lucky. The feeling of luck is no doubt overshadowed by the terrible loss of their friends and business partner. I hate to see any plane much less one I love like the T-tail KA in that condition.
Maybe the Colorado owner put that on to cover the RCMP logo?

Does anybody know what phase of flight this a/c was in at the time of the accident?
