Currently undergoing final preparations at the Houston-Southwest Airport (KAXH/AXH) for departure shortly. The aircraft will be ferried into the RUAG facility at Bern, Switzerland where it will be repainted and placed on floats prior to delivery to European Coastal Airlines of Croatia. This will be the first aircraft to receive ECA's own paint scheme (9A-TOA was an adaptation of an existing scheme).
