Operated by Niki (with additional small titles) in full Air Berlin colours since June 2017 (ex D-ABCL). The aircraft was withdrawn from use in Nov 2017, following the demise of Air Berlin, and sold to KC International Airlines as XU-177 in Oct 2018. Registration OE-LCL was previously used on a Tyrolean CRJ-200 from 1997 to 2010.
Just left the water on take-off from the Hoornsche Hop off Hoorn, on one of several pleasure flights. Photo taken from a RIB (rigid-inflatable boat). Regrettably, after having spent 24 years of its life in the Netherlands, this magnificent aircraft was sold to the Collins Foundation on 11 Oct 2018. It left Dutch waters forever on delivery to the USA on 29 May 2019.
