Just to confuse matters, this is the second Pel-Air Metro to be registered VH-EEQ! This one was built in 1985 and registered N3119B to Wings West Airlines. In 1990 they re-registered it N347AE. In 1993 it was exported to Australia, being registered VH-SST on 5 April. It was re-registered VH-EEQ by Pel-Air in January 2002.
