Photographed shortly after arriving from Liverpool. The significance of the Upols titles is unclear. At the time it was reported to be an acronym of five investor names, but also that it was a Lebanese fruit-shipping company for which the aircraft was due to operate. It is also possible that both are correct. The aircraft carried these titles for a few months only. They were removed the day after this photo was taken, and the proposed fruit-shipping flights never took place.
