Atlas Air's N1361A

Atlas Air is ferrying N1361A (c/n 26265, l/n 570), a 767-31BER, from IWA to QPG as GTI9601, with stops at HNL and GUM. It's bound for freighter conversion, then reassignment to Amazon Prime Air.

26265 was originally purchased by ILFC, then leased to Asiana Airlines in March 1995 as HL7249. In September 2002, it was leased to Air Atlanta Icelandic as TF-ARB "Aida", then sub-leased to Southern Winds. In October 2003, it was leased to LAN Chile as CC-CEN. The airline re-branded as LAN Airlines in October 2004. It was then sub-leased to LAN Argentina from July 2006 to March 2008 as LV-BFD. When it returned to LAN Airlines, it was re-registered as CC-CXL. Blended Winglets were added in May 2011. In May 2014, it was sold to AerCap, and remained with LAN Airlines. In May 2016, LAN merged with Brazil's TAM to form LATAM Airlines, and CC-CXL was transferred to the Chilean subsidiary. In June 2016, it was withdrawn from service, and leased to Atlas Air as N639GT, and stored at GYR.
