Beech 1900 ZK-VAB in its Previous Identity
Mike Condon reminded me that ZK-VAB, which was cancelled from the register yesterday, had a previous New Zealand identity, namely as ZK-JND.
ZK-JND first went into service with Eagle Air on the 28th of August 2001 and was used for crew training and on Eagle Air services until the 15th of January 2002. It did a second stint with Eagle Air from the 20th of April 2002 until early December 2002 before being registered to Vincent Aviation on the 9th of April 2003 and then being registered as ZK-VAB on 14th of May 2003.

Eagle also used a second Raytheon 1900D for crew training and for the introduction of the 1900 to their network. The scond aircraft, ZK-JNG (c/n UE-53), entered service with Eagle Air on the 24th of September 2001 and was used by them until the 6th of January 2002.
