TC-OBF delivered to Onur Air
Onur Air took delivery of its latest aircraft, Airbus A321-231 msn 963 when Airbus A321-231 departed Shannon for Istanbul Ataturk this morning. The aircraft is registered TC-OBF which is in fact the third registration that this particular aircraft has worn in Shannon. On February 25 2009 the aircraft was ferried through Shannon to Howard Airport in Panama as N963DE following the collapse in November 2008 of Turkish operator Inter Express. In November the aircraft departed Howard for Phoenix in preparation for its next life.Last weekend the aircraft arrived in Shannon as OE-IAA registered to Irish Aircraft Leasing. The transfer to the Turkish register took place at the Shannon Aerospace facility earlier last week with the aircraft departing Shannon this morning. This is in fact the second Turkish registration to be worn by the aircraft as it was previously TC-IEH with Atlas Jet, Inter Express and Pakistani operator Air Blue.
