Additional Historical Information

Aircraft has been involved in a protracted legal dispute beginning on 26-Jul-2007 which required it to remain in the possession of 13500 Air Express LLC/Skydive Houston. In Aug-2009 it was determined that the aircraft had not been in compliance with airworthiness directives, due to missing log books & it was grounded at Waller, TX with immediate effect.

Aircraft was moved to the National Aerotech facility at Hampton, GA by 20-Jun-2011 and has remained there since, in non flyable condition. It was subsequently transported to Thomaston, GA when National Aerotech transferred operations there from Hampton.
