Title: Helio N87763 U-10B
Post by: tailhook on January 12, 2019, 09:41:53 AM
Here is a recent demo by JAARS pilot Mike Mower, the announcing may very well be Nathan Mackey. When this Helio comes up for sale, you may want to sign right up. This one was once the "Grey Goose"

I liked this paint scheme originally, but now it looks like a Cessna 206 in a way. Any Helio with the Queen Mary porthole rear window should have the original 3 color paint scheme that were offered by Helio and painted in Mena, AR.

This is my two cents, and in no way reflects the personal tastes of others.

When this airplane becomes available, I hope that someone realizes the value of this icon.

Now, about that paint. Here we go.

Color schemes here are a couple photos but the main thing is the 'belly pod', that needs to go. Lance Goodwin removed the cargo pod on c/n 1243 and the performance increase was noticeable.

these are photos showing paint scheme used in 1962-69 time frame
