Our February edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" features N87SW (c/n 22903, l/n 905), a 737-2H4/Adv, that was photographed at HNL in March 2005, as it taxied on Taxiway RT to the south ramp, where it overnighted as it made its way to Asia.

22903 was originally delivered to Southwest Airlines as N87SW in September 1982. It was withdrawn from service in late 2004, and was sold to a few different owners. In September 2005, it was acquired by Royal Khmer Airlines [FE/RKH] (Kampuchea) as XU-RKC. In May 2006, it was leased to Benin Golf Air [A8/BGL] (Benin) with the same registration, and currently is still under lease. According to PlaneSpotters.net, RKH no longer has a fleet as it all has been leased out.
