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 Withdrawn from use on April 2005.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.

Yes, the good times without the infamous 'Eurowhite'.
