Description: this factory fresh Partenavia was registered to Travair on March 31 1981 but it was already delivered at Antwerp airport four days earlier, here seen without titles with a tiny logo in the tail (which is obscured by the wing in this view). As Travair, established on February 20 1967 as taxi operator, became from January 1 1981 onwards the official dealer for Africa of this Italian aircraft type, this particular airframe passed only via Antwerp airport for the paperwork and was resold quite rapidly, namely on May 4 1981 being cancelled to Rhodesia (Zimbawe) as "VP-WLL" of United Air Charters. However 27 years later, on January 10 2008, it came back in the register as OO-PXL for Aerodata International Surveys in exactly the same livery.
