Fly Guam's N720VX

Fly Guam is taking delivery of their second 737-400 wet-leased from Sky King. N720VX (c/n 24129, l/n 1783), a 737-4K5, is making its delivery flight with the Sky King call-sign, "Songbird", and coding SGB. The MIA-OAK leg was flown as SGB7201, the OAK-HNL leg as SGB7202, and the HNL-MDY as SGB7203. Due to daytime flight restrictions regarding the bird sanctuary, the 737 will wait until this evening to depart for MAJ.

The stopover at HNL was during evening hours, thus no HNL photos.

This 737-4K5 was originally delivered to Germany's Hapag-Lloyd in October 1989 as D-AHLP. In January 1998, it was acquired by Japan Transocean Airlines (JTA), a JAL subsidiary, and registered as JA8953. It was then acquired by Wells Fargo Bank in August 2010, then leased to Sky King as N720VX, as a white tail.
