Withdrawn from use at National Aerotech facility in Hampton GA by Aug-2012. By 15-Apr-2013 the aircraft had been mostly disassembled, with the cockpit/nose section used in the rebuild of MSN 139. The balance of the airframe remained at Hampton, presumably moving to Thomaston, GA when National Aerotech transferred their operations there.
