can anyone give any info on this "Ameristar" caargo 737-200, registered N767TW?

Where do they fly? How many planes, and the history of this particular plane?

I shot this picture in LAX a few months ago.

Thanks.

So nobody knows anything about this airline or the history of this aircraft?

Maybe neither really exist.  Confused

Ok...maybe since no one can give me any factual information on this aircraft or airline, I'll ask some questions that are more on par with the level of most users here:

What do you think of the livery?

Do you think that AmeriStar will/should order A320's or 737NG's?

As for the airline, here is link to their website:

http://www.ameristarjet.com/

As for the aircraft, it is an ex-Lufthansa B737-230QC. Ameristar has 2 B737-200's N737TW (c/n 20257) & N767TW (c/n 20258). Both are ex-Lufthansa.

Ameristar runs its operations in the same vein as Kitty Hawk and USAJet. In addition to the -200 they also fly Falcons.

It's on-demand cargo--primarily car parts. I'm not sure if they are based at YIP, nonetheless they have a big operation there.

Guess what....with the economic downturn (that really is hitting the auto industry), a lot of pilots at companies such as these are finding themselves furloughed or waiting in hotel rooms on extended lay overs. Pay ain't squat either.

To expand on Mr. Silagi's identification and history of the pictured aircraft as N767TW c/n 20258, I can add that was built as line number 276, and first flew on February 12 of 1971.

The aircraft was delivered to Lufthansa on February 18, 1971, and named "Darmstadt". It was transferred to German Cargo Services in May of 1990 (which was then renamed as Lufthansa Cargo Airlines on May 1, 1993). Air Atlanta Icelandic leased it on September 16, 1994 (reregistered it as TF-ABF) and promptly leased it back to Lufthansa.

As for it's ending up in Ameristar's hands, my source is dated August 1997, so it transferred since that time.
