Aerolineas Argentinas took delivery of LV-LOA directly from the Fokker factory in Holland on 13Jan75 flying its entire career for AR except for eight months in 1984 when it was reregistered as HK-3126X and leased to ACES Colombia.

On 16Jul86 the aircraft exited the runway when landing at Ushuaia (USH), the world's southernmost international airport.  Reports indicate that the runway had some ice accumulation and one eyewitness claimed the aircraft landed long.  LV-LOA was repaired and returned to service until its retirement in the 1990's and it was scrapped at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) in 1996.
