Some of C/N 1240 are still flying. My cargo door and various attaching parts came from N60JA. Did require a little bit of "repairs" by Jim Metzler. Thanks Jim, I like the door!!

Here are a couple photos recently pointed out to me 1 from Facebook and one from Flicker.

They should be the second and just before the last photo in the queue above.

The first is a photo taken at Davis Monthan 3/74 in US Environmental Protection Agency Livery while in storage there. Photo (c) : Ben Knowles

The second photo was labeled as N60JA's last flight at Sun-N-Fun '11.

Here is a picture that should be 1 at the top of the page. It was taken at Peterson AFB while being used as a glider tug 3 months  before being placed in storage at Davis-Montham.
