With all the recent talk online about the current Trademe auction for the mortal remains of Boeing 727 NZ7272, I am wondering is the other 727, NZ7271, is still actively flying? It was sold to Swaziland in Africa, and became 3D-KMJ. Any ideas?
So a bit of Googling comes up with the following leads...
On the 40 Sqn Wiki page it states "NZ7271 19892 entered service in July 1981 and was retired on 7 July 2003. (It became 3D-KMJ and then 9Q-CMP in Africa and was scrapped in 2005)" See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No._40_Squadron_RNZAF
