I just did a Google search “Helio SIL Brazil”  quite interesting I wonder if any of this is true, maybe there are reasons Jaars won't share anything they sure don't seem to be refuting any of the allegations.

Placed a poor quality picture of ''Spirit of Philadelphia'' c/n 057 taken 07/63 in Brazil as N9337R as number 1 in queue above, apparently this was before Brazil grounded the aircraft and forced SIL to register the a/c as PT-CDF.

Picture was found at one of the Jaars social media pages it was pretty small and when blown up it lost a lot of quality.

Anyone have a better picture to replace this one?

And we still need a picture of c/n 057 as YV-T-ETV Venezuela.
