Dash 8-102 ZK-VAC

Departing from Darwin for Bali 12 October on export to Europe was Vincent Aviation's Dash 8-102 ZK-VAC.  The aircraft has been part of the NZ scene for a number of years arriving in 1987 to become ZK-NEZ for service with Ansett NZ before transferring to Air National in August 2000.  Five years later it moved to Vincent Aviation and underwent an identity change to ZK-VAC.

ZK-VAC departed Wellington for Queenstown, Hobart and Broken Hill on 23 July this year and to Alice Springs and Darwin the following day.
