WTF is that? Is this thing still flying? Looks like it might fall out of the sky any minute. The paint scheme screams "I'm rusty and old". LoL!!!!

Obviously stored. Look at the duct tape on the nose wheel!

The aircraft has not been flying since 2007, it arrived in Lima, Peru for maintenance work.
It was abandoned by its owners, the entity in charge of the maintenance of this aircraft made that livery as part of a campaign.
Today, the plane is complete and abandoned.
