N278TA (msn 278), an A340-313, is ferrying from SFB [Orlando Sanford International Airport, FL] to CGK, via HNL.

278 was purchased by Orix Aviation, and leased to Air Canada in June 1999 as C-GDVZ (f/n 910). In June 2009, it was leased to Air Asia X as 9M-XAC, and wore the Oakland Raiders special livery for three years. It was subleased to Saudi Arabian Airlines from June 2012 to November 2013. After it was returned to Air Asia X, it remained as a white tail, but wore a decal for Wakanow.com (a Nigerian travel company) for a short period of time. It was stored at SZW [Schwerin-Parchim, Germany] from August 2015 to July 2016. Lufthansa Technik acquired this A340, and registered it as D-AAAM, and ferried to SFB.
