It was originally destined for Overseas National Airways but ONA ceased operations the day before delivery.
It was operated by Loftleidir Icelandic and a few other airlines. Ownership passed to Tigerair and
ultimately to FedEx where it entered service in 1984. It was still in service there in the summer of 2013,
thirty-five years after it left the factory. (GR)
