United Air Service HS.748 7P-LAI

South Africa, December 1983 (Propfreak Collection)

This 1970 built Hawker was originally owned by French carrier Rousseau Aviation which leased her to SATA Air Acores until being sold to Air Botswana in 1975. United Air came into the picture when they acquired the turboprop in 1981 and leased her straight away to Air Comores as ZS-LHN. When returned half a year later she spent a year with United Air before being leased to Zambia Airways and registered with Lesotho markings as 7P-LAI. She was returned to United Air in early 1984 and sold to Canada in 1986 where she still soldiers on in the colors of Wasaya Airways.
