A 750XL not previously reported on is ZK-SWA, serial number 130 and previously registered ZK-JNV from April 2007 until June 2007 when its ownership changed from the manufacturer to Kiwi Air of Gisborne. It was at Cork, Ireland 01Nov 2007 and then again on 17Feb (see attached photo) and commented that it was enroute from Africa (arrived from Lisbon). It was noted at Marqueete, Michigan on 01Aug and has now arrived in Australasia, being photographed at Toowoomba 08Nov and rocking into Cairns from Innisfail on 15Nov and then noted again flying into Cairns from Mareeba 21Nov. It carries the titles of UTS as does most aircraft operated by Kiwi Air.

Kiwi Air's fleet includes 750XL's ZK-FNZ, ZK-JBC, ZK-XLA and ZK-XLB plus Reims/Cessna Twin Caravan ZK-XLC which is apparently operating somewhere in Alaska and Cresco ZK-LTP in Australia!
Does anyone know how ZK-SWA left NZ, or was it built in the USA? The NZ Customs website has it listed so perhaps it left NZ around October 2007 to be in Cork by 01Nov07.
