A thousand ATRs built

ATR72-600 from Air Nostrum EC-LRH, with the sticker of 1000 ATRs built, curiously with cn 999 landing at Manises Airport (VLC) 16-6-2012.
Rarely 1000 units are constructed of a commercial passenger aircraft turbo prop.

C/N is the 1000th one because there are 999 with regular C/N (e.g. 001, 192), and one with a C/N of 012A.

Not exactly.

I think the 12A may take the place of c/n 13. It looks like they delivered c/n 1000 before number 999. So 999 is actually the 1,000th delivery.
