Registration is NZ7572 as in New Zealand I don't belief that is an N-number as in FAA reg.

It's also a military tail # vs. a civilian reg.

It's NZ owned and registered, formerly flew for Transavia under the Dutch register.

NZ7572 B757-2K2 C/N26634
Previously PH-TKB with Transavia Airlines. Rolled out 27 March 1993. First flight 15 April 1993. Delivered to Transavia Airlines 03 May 1993. Last service for Transavia Rhodos-Amsterdam as TRA2324 on 18 May 2003. Ferried Amsterdam-Bristol on 19 May 2003 as TRA051 for repainting. Ferried Bristol-Shannon as TRA053 on 25 May for maintenance. Sold to GECAS June 2003 for onsale to RNZAF. Arrived at Whenuapai on 30 June 2003 for service with No.40 Squadron after being delayed in the USA for a week during it's delivery flight because of a fuel leak. Entered operational service on 11 July 2003.

They also operate her slightly older sister 757-2K2 C/N 26633 as NZ7571

NTW anyone interested in Australian or NZ military aviation will find lots to interest them at -



PS a valid US N reg must start with a digit between 1-9 so NZ7572 can't work and N7572Z is a Piper Super Cub

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
