Notice number change wonder if this a photoshop or if the camera was on tripod then the number was changed?

notice the more aerodynamic cowling primarily designed for much better cooling if you have a H-700 you need this cowling.

I found a picture of H-7 enroute to Cypress at Biggin Hill fld London in'91, so I decided to post it kind of an interesting registry while it was registered in the US to Forrest Bird (Gump??) the a/c was N981RD (Big Bird) then when he bought a twin he moved that registry to it, and reregistered H-7 to N61RD (little bird).

I opened it as #3 in the lineup

Anyone know if H-7 is still sitting in the airport salvage area behind the new control tower at Nicosia-Lakatamia Airport, Cyprus?
