Registration/Serial No. | Remarks & Notes
N4795P (cn 341) You don't get to see Pilatus Porters very often in the United States, let alone the very rare piston-engine version (most are the turboprop version nowadays). This aircraft was built in 1960 and started out as a mapping aircraft in Finland before becoming a skydiving airplane in Finland, Norway and finally North Myrtle Beach, SC.

Nate, SDMB sold her back in June to a jump operation in either Northern Arizona or southern Nevada. Not sure exactly.

I used to fly her when she was based in Southern Missouri, one of my favorite aircraft! Where is she based now?

Awesome shot! I was the guy flying! She was a great bird, but has since been sold.
