Trans World Airlines' N637TW

Our October edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" goes back to August 2001, and Trans World Airlines' N637TW (c/n 25403, l/n 409, f/n 16107). The 767-33AER is seen above at HNL's Gate 23, getting ready to depart for STL.

25403 was originally purchased by AWAS, and leased to LAN Chile [LA/LAN] as CC-CEU in January 1992. GECAS purchased this 767 in 1998, and leased it to Air Madagascar [MD/MDG] that April as 5R-MVZ; and re-registered in September as 5R-MFC. In September 1999, it was leased to TWA as N637TW. Following the merger between TWA and American Airlines, N637TW was transferred, and assigned the AAL fleet number 6TE. In September 2004, it was leased to BRA Transportes AĆ©reos [BRB] (Brazil) as PR-BRW; and was sub-leased to Ocean Air [O6/ONE] (Brazil) in November 2007 for a few months, before it was returned to GECAS. Ryan International Airlines [RD/RYN] leased this 767-33AER from July 2009 to January 2013 as N637TW. Since then, it has been sitting storage at MZJ.
