Airwork's N919GF

Airwork / Toll Priority (HT/PST) is receiving another 737-300SF. This one, N919GF (c/n 24834, l/n 1896), a 737-3S1SF, is being leased from Aurora Leasing (San Antonio, TX). It's New Zealand registry will be ZK-TLE. The flight originated in MIA and made a stop at LGB before crossing the Pacific.

24834 was originally delivered TACA International Airlines (TA/TAI) as N371TA, under lease from FSBU, in July 1990. It was then sub-leased to Freedom Air International [New Zealand] (SJ/FOM) in April 1996, for one year. After its return to TAI, it was sub-leased to VARIG (RG/VRN) as PP-VPF in August 1997. The leasing company ACAP acquired 24834, and was leased to Hemus Air as LZ-HVB in June 2006. Under the same tail number, it was transferred to Bulgaria Air in May 2007. Aurora Leasing bought 24834 in December 2010, re-registered it as N919GF, and converted it to a freighter at MIA.

N919GF is seen above about to land on a rain-drenched Runway 4R arriving from LGB.
