Addition Features, Equipment or Comments:

Sadly, the majority of the personal history of this airplane was lost when the owner passed not long ago. He owned it for a very long time as part of a collection of planes and other vehicles. As a result, the airplane has not flown much in the last 39 years. Its last annual inspection was in 2016 and has only been ground run since. The estate is working to get the airplane “fly away” ready. It is anticipated that the airplane will go through an annual inspection prior to completion of the sale.
