Discoloured Isle of Man Embraer Legacy M-NJSS 14012013
Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy c/n 145686 M-NJSS of Saby financxe awaiting a paint job in front of the hangar of aircraft painter QAPS (Quality Aircraft Paining Services) at Lelystad airport in The Netherlands (EHLE) on 14 Januari 2012. The aircraft first flew in December 2003 as PT-SAT and was first operated by Swift Air as N686SG since 30 December 2003. It went to RusJet as P4-IVM to be operated for the Russian gas company Itera Holdings. Saby Finance took over the aircraft as M-NJSS on 29 October 2011. Saby retained the Itera livery, save the red Itera "E" symbol on the tail. The aircraft is registered in the Isle of Man register, which was established in 2007 as a dedicated private aircraft register. Reasons for registering aircraft in the IoM register are cost-effectiveness and its "anonymous character". I took the photo during a bus tour at the airport. Unfortunately I could not avoid window reflections, but they go well with the worn out paint on the aircraft.
