B737-500 in South Africa

This 22 year old aircraft started flying with Air France (F-GJNC). AELS bought this aircraft with external financing. The initial plan was to ferry fly this aircraft to Woensdrecht. Due to a variety of reasons, however, AELS acquired this aircraft in South Africa. This made this project the first disassembly by AELS in Africa, adding a 4th continent and a 10th country to our track record.
