A few from the ferry of this former Toll B737-300F from Brisbane to Jo'burg via Darwin, Jakata, Maldives and Mauritius. (Pics via GU).

TLD is a 1988 model (cn23706) line number 1499 (the 1499th B737 classic -300/400/500 built). Delivered to USAir where it spend most of its life.

Retired from US Airways in 2006 and converted to freighter. Delivered to Airwork New Zealand in 2007 where it has been flying around in the colours of New Zealand’s largest domestic freight forwarder TOLL until retired 4/Nov/2016. It was ferried to South Africa 26-28/Nov/2016.

Jakata - Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport - a Batik Air A320 landing, and a for me very interesting backdrop :Like:

B737-300 I guess

Sign in the background mentions runway 18/36 so that should make it Male - Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, Maldives.

Boarding 'almost' complete

Assumed to become ZS- in the near future, but fear it will get the dreaded polar camouflage colors :crazy1:

You mean that colour that shows supremacy? Air supremacy that is.
