  1. Nice pictures of the Convair. has Air Chathams operated other convairs that have departed the country?

  2. Yes, they operated ZK-KSA (see the post last week). It was later operated by Pionair and then went to Australia where it became VH-PDV. It has subsequently sold in Canada and is registered C-GYXC.
