This 1984 built Short 360 was put on the British register as G-BLIL and first flew under test registration G-14-3647 on May 24 that year. It was leased to Wright Airlines as N635KC for a few month before operated by ASA Atlantic Southeast Airlines between November 1984 and June 1988. It showed up on the Australian register in February 1990, shortly before this picture was taken. It was apparently converted to a C-23B+ Sherpa becoming msn SH3417 in 1997 with the military serial "93-1333" assigned, before being operated by the US Forest Service till around 2013 as N177Z.

In 2008 Canberra-based Brindabella Airlines gave this Metro a new coat of vanilla paint and currently has it offered for sale. Evidently they are still using it in the meantime. The aircraft has an interesting history: built 1982 as Merlin IVC, cn AT-513. Re-delivered Dec 86 to Texas National Airlines as N3108H. Passed through several hands before moving to New Zealand in Feb 89 - became ZK-NSV with Air Nelson. Returned to US registry Jun 03 as N513FA. VH-TAO 1 Oct 2003.
