Insel Air International (Curacao) acquired this ex-Alitalia (1st) McDonnell Douglas DC-9-82 (MD-82) now registered N431LF (msn 49194, ex I-DAWI). It was ferried to Curacao on October 19, 2009 and will be used for spare parts. The crew took the opportunity to apply some interesting hand-drawn titles such as “Scrapheap”, “Curacao or Bust” and the larger “Out of Africa”.
