Additional Historical Information

04-Aug-1987 While on a scheduled TW Express flight, operating VFR in the vicinity of Palmdale, CA the aircraft collided with Cessna 172 N737EV.

Repairs were undertaken at Carlsbad-McClellan/Palomar Airport & noted there Aug-1988 with tail damage repaired but no engines; Oct-1988 with engines fitted and still in ex-TW Express c/s; noted at Los Angeles, CA Apr-1989 in service in full Pan Am Commuter c/s
