Airbus A330-223 VH-SSA msn 324
Stuck in Honolulu after the airline's collapse, the aircraft ferried to Zurich for storage. It was later re-registered M-ABFL to AirCastle. On 8th March 2013 M-ABFL arrived into Manchester for painting by Air Livery to become OO-SFU of Brussels Airlines. Ironically this aircraft was first delivered to Sabena in May 2000 and was also registered OO-SFU. The aircraft also flew for Lufthansa as D-AIME and Swiss as HB-IQR before joining Strategic Aviation and later Air Australia as VH-SSA.
