There's a couple more photos in the photo section here.  Here's an oldie that I have on my computer right now.  Incredibly frustrating what has happened to our family plane in recent years.

Hi Doug, you have #598 and #592 listed in the same thread. I believe these are two different airplanes, as N4198D is #592

Maybe I read it wrong.

Finally go around to removing military c/n 598 photos

I just found that N5071B c/n 1268 and N198D c/n 592were sold to Perry Linton Norman wells NT.

Anyone know if they will be parted out or if the intent is to put one back in service?

Does Perry intend to give either A/C a Canadian registry.

Edited history paragraph above.

Anyone have current photos?

This photo was found at airport data should be placed as #1 in the photo queue above
The photo of c/n 592, N4198D was  taken at Jackson Hole (KJAC) in spring of 1972. N4198D crash landed and nosed over the previous year. James Chouteau dad bought it from the insurance company and they completely restored it in one winter. This photo was either just before or after the FAA cleared her to fly.
