N413JG (c/n 23148, l/n 1059), a 737-2Q8/Adv, is TransAir's newest acquisition. It arrived last night from MNL (via GUM and MAJ), and is at their hangar along with N810TA. This 737-2Q8 is currently in a passenger configuration, and would be the airline's first passenger version. Trans Air has two Shorts SD-360s in passenger configuration.

23148 was originally purchased by ILFC in October 1984, and leased to America West Airlines as N137AW. In July 1995, it was then leased to Ladeco [UC/LCO] (Chile) as CC-CYV. In April 2000, it was leased to Westjet Airlines [WS/WJA](Canada) as C-FLWJ. In March 2006, 23148 was sold to Weststar Aviation (Malaysia) as N413JG. According to the FAA registry, Trans Air acquired N413JG this past February, and was ferried to MNL.
