While sistership MSN 127 N54AN was able to be flown out of Saint Croix prior to Hurricane Hugo, C-FBRA was not in airworthy condition and was forced to ride out the storm in the Virgin Islands Seaplane Shuttle hangar (see photo). The wreckage was subsequently transported to Rantoul, KS to Dodson International Parts.
