Trans Air's N809TA

Trans Air has taken delivery of their third 737-200F, with N809TA (c/n 23796, l/n 1420). The 737-209F/Adv, arrived from BKI [Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Malaysia], via GUM and MAJ.

23796 was originally delivered to China Airlines in July 1987 as B-182. In January 1997, it was sold to Transmile Air Services [TH/TSE] (Malaysia) as 9M-PMZ. During its time with TSE, it was leased to Mandala Airlines [RI/MDL] as PK-RIV in June 1997, for a year; then Bayu Indonesia [DD/BYU] in June 2001 for a year as PK-BYA; it then went to Kartika Airlines [KAE] as PK-KAR. In September 2010, it was converted to a freighter with TSE, still as PK-PMZ.
