This Metro was built for Kendell Airlines in 1993, but initially registered to Fairchild as N3021U for the ferry to Australia. It arrived at Kendell's Wagga base on 22 Aug and was re-registered VH-KAN on the 26th. After Kendell was sold, the aircraft was re-registered to Regional Express (Rex) on 2 Sept 2002. In 2006 Rex announced that they were planning to retire all their Metros from passenger service, and VH-KAN was subsequently re-registered to Rex subsidiary Pel-Air on 22 Dec that year.
