c/n 1243 as N7211Q

Below N7211Q c/n 1243 as it looked when it left Jim Metzlers shop after being refurbished

Doug Johnson:
I found a couple pics at Yakutat air

Doug Johnson:
It appears that 1243 is for sale at Barnstormers $159K

If you want a set of Jarrs crash worthy energy absorbing seats this the place to get them, only problem you have to buy the whole airplane. I guess you could swap airplanes or seats then resell the A/C.

Included is a photo of the seats opened above. Interesting that the front seats have Lumbar support and the sling seat (5th and 6th) are replaced with individual seats. The sling seat in my opinion is for kids only, it is really uncomfortable.

A 1200 Helio with square Windows.    What a sin

previous post as N12TH

c/n 1243, has changed hands again did a historical paragraph edit in the previous post

I have a couple pictures as well, the first is a picture that Jim Metzler posted a few days ago as an example of it being placed on a trailer, at that point it had just been returned from Liberia as N7211Q (I kind of like the sound of that Number) and was being refurbished by Jim so Jaars could sell it.

I opened them in the queue

The next picture is a Photo of 1243 as C-GXFA (special request for the A because they already owned C-GXFB) along with C-GXFB. Lance says GXFA is a big help but performance limited for takeoffs and landings above 6500' because it isn't turbocharged like C-GXFB.

Can anyone help with a picture of 1243 as EL-LBT?
