In Bound Beech 1900

With the commencement of the withdrawal of Air New Zealand's Beech 1900s we have seen the first of them moving off- shore. Reversing the trend today is Beech 1900D ZK-VAB which is scheduled to fly into New Zealand today from the Gold Coast via Norfolk Island. One presumes it will be offered for sale... who knows it could pick up work into some upset provincial towns!

ZK-VAB was previously working for Vincent Aviation in Myanmar...http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2014/08/where-on-earth-is-vincents-vab.html
