Photo Comment

The Expediter is a purpose-built freighter with strengthened floor. This one was built in 1983 and registered N3113T, later going to United Parcel Service as N567UP. It was one of three Expediters obtained by Pel-Air in 1996 and was re-registered VH-EEP on 10 December that year. This shot shows it retired at the Rex maintenance base (Rex owns Pel-Air) awaiting disposal.
