This was delivered to Avianca as EI-CEQ (GPA Group aircraft) in May1992. It went to Ameristar in December, but, unfortunately, it was w/o on 8th March, 2017 during an aborted take-off at YIP when it overran the runway by 350m, hit approach lighting and the perimeter fence, slid over a road and a ditch before coming to a stop. Fortunately, there were no fatalities.
Norway Airlines operated revenue flights from February 1988 until it declared bankruptcy and ceased all operations on 14 October 1992. This MD-83 was sub-leased from Transwede Airways. Following Norway Airline's termination in October, the aircraft was returned to Transwede and it is quite likely that they continued operating the London Gatwick route (with the aircraft not yet painted back into Transwede colours).
