Many thx Marc :thumbsup1: I seem to remember that Border Air had an Islander in the old days, could this not be the same one? No idea on this one, never heard of Border Air I am afraid.

Awesome pics Raffles!

The ion-thruster propulsion system doesn't seem to be used much - 9H-BEC has been standing in the same corner seemingly engineless (to those not in the know) since at least May.
