Retired Aerolineas Argentinas 737-200 Painted and Displayed in New Colors

Retired Aerolineas Argentinas 737-200, LV-ZYG, c/n 21795, was recently disassembled "at the airport" (unclear whether it was stored at Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) or Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) but probably the latter), trucked to the Tecnopolis fair of Argentine technological achievements, reassembled, and "painted" with stickers in Aerolineas' newest scheme.      

The interesting detail about this is that 737-200's never flew with Aerolineas in the carrier's newest color scheme with the type having been retired from AR service on November 15, 2009, a few months before the introduction of the new colors.      

Tecnopolis is located just outside the northwest border of Buenos Aires with several other aircraft on display there; including a Chinook helicopter, A-4 Skyhawk, Pucara, and the Pulqui I and Pulqui II prototype jet fighters designed and built in Argentina in the late 1940's and early 1950's but that were never mass-produced.
