Hi,
I flew on this aircraft recently :

I noticed while in the cockpit that her previous reg was 9M-MFD as it hadn't been painted over (look under the clock, to the left of the FMC) :

Now here's the catch : 9M-MFD's msn is listed by Charles as 26448/2484, whereas I am sure that F-GJNZ is 26450/2503
So what gives ?  Nuts

According to Jet Airliner Production List;
26449 was supposed to be 9M-MFD but was not taken up.
26450 was delivered to Malaysian as 9M-MFD on july28 in -93.

MSN 26778/2484 is 9M-MFC
MSN 26450/2503 was 9M-MFD and is now F-GJNZ

Sold/delivered to Malaysian, who in turn sold to GECAS, who leased to Air France  Smile
