The Passaredo ATR 72-500 Aviationtag Edition!
Samba do Brasil!
Brazil is colourful and diverse – just like the latest Aviationtag edition! The ATR 72-500 from Brazilian airline Passaredo Linhas Aéreas means we finally have a turboprop back in the Aviationtag fleet.
In 1999, PR-PDH sporting manufacturer serial number (MSN) 572 was initially delivered to the Indian airline Jet Airways, operating under registration VT-JCA. After four years of taking to the skies with Jet Airways, the ATR 72 was returned to its lessor and parked in Ireland with the registration EI-FAN.
In November, a new lessee was finally found, with the plane making its way to Brazil to fly
for Passaredo Linhas Aéreas as PR-PDH. Passadero christened the ATR “Tucano” after a municipality in the province of Bahia.
In late 2016, the MSN 572 returned to its lessor and was parked in Saarbrücken. It was there that we discovered the colourful plane and were able to lock in the most beautiful parts for our latest Aviationtag Edition when it was scrapped!
