The aircraft was operated by World Airways for a number of years and was sub-leased to numerous airlines which included Garuda Indonesian Airlines, Ghana Airways, and City Bird all as N280WA. The aircraft also operated with China Airlines as N489GX. Bought by Fed Ex in April 2001 the aircraft was converted into a freighter and is seen departing LAX on a recent January morning.

Thank you very much.

I get the information from production list books that I have. I keep detailed production lists on my website and these books are an enormous help to me.
