Original Aircraft Skin / Aviationtag / ATR 72-500 PR-PDH
The ATR 72-500 from Brazilian airline Passaredo Linhas Aéreas means we finally have a turboprop back in the Aviationtag fleet.
In 1999, PR-PDH sporting manufacturer serial number (MSN) 572 was initially delivered to the Indian airline Jet Airways, operating under registration VT-JCA. After four years of taking to the skies with Jet Airways, the ATR 72 was returned to its lessor and parked in Ireland with the registration EI-FAN.
In November, a new lessee was finally found, with the plane making its way to Brazil to fly
for Passaredo Linhas Aéreas as PR-PDH. Passadero christened the ATR “Tucano” after a municipality in the province of Bahia.
In late 2016, the MSN 572 returned to its lessor and was parked in Saarbrücken.
