Air Charter Express Saab 2000 N559FR

Operated FRG290 which carried the South Carolina Gamecocks back to CAE after their loss against the Aggies.

Not only are Saab 2000s extremely rare these days (only 31 are active at the time of writing), this particular bird also wore a bizarre yet beautiful hybrid scheme - understandable as she changed hands often. Rolling off the production line at Linköping in 1998, she bounced between Crossair (later Swiss), Polet Flight, Darwin Airline, Etihad Regional, Adria, and finally Air Charter Express. She would swing by our field again a few months later, this time wearing ACE's standard colors with a lovely cheatline.

Thus I decided to commemorate this rare catch by illustrating her in both aforementioned liveries.
