Would one of You guys that work for Wright Air take a picture of the N6481V in its current condition, everybody carries a cellphone that takes pictures. Don't they?

This aircraft had a valid and current registry with Wright air (Bob Bursiel) until recently, reg cancelled 03/27/2017. I'm not sure what its current condition is, but it would be nice to have a picture of it in its current condition.

I think I asked AU miner a couple years ago to at least take a cell phone picture. I'm pretty sure he never got back to me.

Apparently it is stored as a wreck and being used for parts.



The 2nd picture below was probably taken not to long before it had its last accident and was removed from service.

Added photo as #1 because it was taken in '71 an early color photo

Still need a photo of the fuselage in the salvage yard, to close the post.
