This aircraft, which was last operated in Indonesia by Mandala, was flown to Woensdrecht by the lessor Aercap. AELS disassembled and dismantled the aircraft for FL Technic, who bought it from Aercap. As part of the services provided, AELS sold some sections (such as the cockpit) for alternative re-use as well as some remaining components. The aircraft was previously operated by Monarch (G-MONW) and Eirjet (EI-DIJ). This was the first A320 disassembled and dismantled by AELS.
