This 1985 Metro has an interesting history. Originally N614AV with Air Virginia; became Nashville Eagle. Then to Flagship Airlines, then Wings West. In 1987 operated for American Eagle. At some stage reacquired by Fairchild & converted to prototype Fairchild Multi Mission Surveillance Aircraft, carrying a phased-array radar in a long pod under the fuselage. Returned to standard configuration & exported to Australia, becoming VH-SSZ 29 September 1994. VH-EES since Jul 2001. Now awaiting disposal.
