C-FMKW, 7009, was the ninth Canadair Regional Jet built and began its service life with Lufthansa Cityline. 7009 was delivered in December 1992 as D-ACLD and was configured as a RJ100ER aircraft. 7009 was to be delivered as D-ARJD, but it and all further CRJs in Cityline’s first order were to be registered in the D-ACL series instead. The aircraft did undergo a conversion to the RJ100LR configuration, but never underwent the upgrade to the RJ200LR configuration like other members of the CityLine CRJ fleet did.
The aircraft flew in various Lufthansa titles as did all of the CityLine CRJ fleet during their service. 7009 was withdrawn from service in February 2007 and then leased on to Cimber Air in April 2007. The aircraft operated with Cimber Air until the airline restructured and became Cimber Sterling. 7009 is, as of October 2012, is storage after the closure of Cimber Sterling.
