WOW... 52 years old and still flying while we see frames less than half her age in the desert being broken. I guess they either don't make them like they used to or some one has a soft spot for these old girls and can afford to blow wads of cash on fuel.

Thanks all for the comments. It was a combined effort in tracking her flight plan by several people.
