After being in storage at Cairns this one is back in the air ... great to see such an oldie still flying ! Apparently Air Chatham bought this aircraft for spare parts for its Convair 580 ZK-CIB ... then after taking a closer look they decided that this one is in a much better state !!! So KSA will keep flying and CIB is providing spare parts for her ! For some odd reason it still has its King Solomon titles, eventhough it last flew for them 4 years ago!
