Our September edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" dates back to December 2005, when Harmony Airways [HQ/HMY] flew between HNL and YVR. Pictured above is Harmony's 757-28A, C-GMYE (c/n 32449, l/n 974, f/n 800), departing Runway 22L for YVR.
32449 was originally purchased by Wells Fargo Bank Northwest (WFBN), and leased to American Trans Air (and subsequently ATA Airlines) in September 2001 as N513AT. In July 2005, it was leased to Harmony Airways. After HMY's shutdown, 32449 was leased to Ethiopian Airlines in August 2007, as ET-AMK, where it continues to fly today.
