Phuket Air YS-11A HS-KVA

Hi all,

need your help in identifying the former registration(s) and construction number of HS-KVA, now painted in the colours of Phuket Air (but with a twist).

There was a YS-11A parked in Clark field Philippines in full Phuket air colours for 3 to 4 month. However last week this aircraft had disapeared and was told this had been delivered,

this was an ex Air Philippines one

Are the MetroJet colours now standard for Phuket Air?

The standard livry remains the standard livery . . . but the owner seems to like the Metrojet hybrid livery.

HS-KUO remains in the ANA colours, and I wonder what livery it will eventually be painted in.

HS-KVA is former Air Nippon JA8761, cn 2133. A source for questions like this is http://www.airlinerlist.com
Amazing colours, never thought they'd adopt the Metrojet colours, but must admit it's nicer than their original scheme. Might be a nice separate thread; which airlines chose a new scheme because they liked the colours of 2nd hand planes they bought. I can think of Dinar Argentina who adapted Crossairs old colours, or JAS in Japan who took over the Airbus house colours.
