HI all

Can you help me with the owner / operator and also a correct serial for this aircraft. To me it looks like a LET-410 but I can't find record of it anywhere.

It was seen over Valletta, Malta on 4 December 2014

Thanks for any help

If you look at the fin it's ZS-ATJ surely.....part of the underwing lettering is missing

The aircraft may have been exported as it is not on the register now.

Aircraft was looking good in Greece last June! Was previously registered as PR-NHA and sold May 2013.
