After so many years here's another model from Oceania, the last of the batch of 11: an Air New Zealand 747-200B, reg. ZK-NZX, 1973 colors, named "Takitimu". She was delivered new to ANZ on June 1981. She was leased to Malaysia (Mar 1992 - Apr 1993) and to Virgin Atlantic (Jun - Nov 1993). She left the fleet on June 1999. To Virgin Atlantic on May 2000, as G-VSSS "Island Lady". Purchased by Air Atlanta Icelandic on February 2002, reg. TF-ATW; leased back to Virgin on May 2002, still wearing Icelanic reg., then reregistered G-VSSS on February 2004. Withdrawn from use on April 2005. Finally, she went to Transaero on July 2005, retired and stored at RME on April 2009. Scrapped.
