N709AG (c/n 24709, l/n 2115), a 737-4Q8 owned by ACG Acquisitions, is ferrying through HNL from MIA, via SBD. It's bound for New Zealand's Airwork/Toll Priority. It left for APW early this morning.

According to MRC Aviation, it will be registered as ZK-TLF.

24709 was originally delivered delivered to ILFC, and leased to Malaysia Airlines as 9M-MJG in September 1991. Carnival Airlines acquired the 737-4Q8 in July 1994, and was registered as N604KW. When the airline was merged with Pan American Airways, N604KW went with it, and was named "Clipper Splendid". In July 1998, ILFC leased 24709 to Olympic Airways as SX-BKM. The Greek carrier bought the 737 from ILFC in December 2003, and received the 2007 livery. ACG Acquisitions purchased it in August 2009, and was placed in storage at VCV. Only recently was it ferried to MIA, via RSW, for preparation for ACG's next lessee, Toll Priority. We've been told by sources that this 737-4Q8 has been converted to a freighter.

N709AG was originally scheduled for delivery from December 20th, but was delayed until after the holiday season.

Sorry, we were unable to get a photo of N709AG while at HNL.
