N631GT (c/n 25685, l/n 430), a 767-375ER, is ferrying from MZJ to QPG (via LAX and HNL) on its way to be converted into a freighter. Owned by Atlas Air, it will have the Amazon.com "Prime Air" livery, and operate on behalf of the online retailer, and be re-registered as N1217A.

25685 was originally ordered by Canadian Airlines International, as C-GCAW, but was not taken up, and was sold to Guinness Peat Aviation in April 1992. In November 1992, it was leased to China Southern Airlines as B-2561, but was subsequently sold to GECAS in October 1996, and remained with CSN. In January 1997, it was leased to LAN Chile as CC-CRG.  In September 2004, CIT Leasing acquired this 767-375ER, and it remained under lease with LAN, until October 2014. During its time with LAN, it was transferred to LAN Argentina from December 2008 to October 2010 as LV-BTE. In January of this year, Atlas Air acquired this 767 as N258CT, and re-registered it as N631GT, but was stored at MZJ.
