Description: before entering service with DAT, during heavy maintenace details of its original livery re-appeared with name "Pan Adria". Officially Pan Adria changed its name to Trans Adria on September 15 1978, but this particular airframe was already withdrawn from use by December 1977, so therefore it never adopted its new name.
