This 1985-model Metro went first to Pioneer Airlines as N2680V. In 1988 it was leased to Wings West Airlines, who re-registered it as N346AE in 1990. In March 1993 it was returned to the leasing company and later that year was sold in Australia, becoming VH-SSW on 15 December with Newcastle Aviation. It went to Pel-Air Express in December 1994, but was not re-registered until February 2002. This aircraft is actually VH-EER(4) - number 3 also being a Metro, just to make things confusing! Retired now.
