Thanks for bringing this up, I've been wondering the same thing myself. I was actually out in Rome twice in the past few months and it has been out there for over 3 months. For what it looked like it was getting a heavy check. All the engines were off along with the landing gear. The logo on the plane was Southern Winds, however they were sanding off all the paint, maybe a new paint job. After doing a search on google you can see the plane was sitting out in EINN for the past few years. I have been watching Flightaware for the past few weeks waiting for this plane to depart and see where it goes. Its nice to see that its finally up in the air, I assume just doing some checks on it to make sure they put everything together right. Seeing that Empire did all the work, I think thats a safe bet.
