Just airborne from runway 23 at Dublin, 21 July 1984. The titles and tail logo were as per the carrier’s new livery, which was never applied to this aircraft. In October 1984 it was sold to GPA and became EI-BPG. The following year it was converted to series 71CF configuration, with CFM-56 engines, and began a new career with UPS as N798UP. It was withdrawn from use and parked at Roswell NM in April 2009. It has since been scrapped.
