This aircraft was purchased from the United States in 1987 on occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding of Flugfélag Akureyrar (Akureyri Airways). It is very similar to the original TF-AZX, Stinson SR-8-CM Reliant, which was Loftleiðir's first aircraft. The original aircraft was purchased in Canada in 1943 by Loftleiðir founders Alfreð Elíasson, Edvard Kristinn Olsen, and Sigurður Ólafsson.
The aircraft in the Icelandic Aviation Museum was donated to the museum by Icelandair on 3rd June 2007 on occasion of Flugfélag Akureyrar's 70th anniversary.
