Here is a rare opportunity to own a real warbird. This unique airplane was built in 1957 and exported to France for use by the French Air Force. It was brought back to the United States in 1983 and re-registered with a U.S. certificate of airworthiness. This plane is extra-special as it is fitted with a constant-speed prop whereas most Bird Dogs have a fixed pitch prop. Both engine and prop were overhauled in 2008 and only have 510/306 hours on them respectively.  Beautiful Army arctic paint scheme. This aircraft is equipped with rockets and racks which are difficult to find and are a $7500 value. Absolutely turn-key and a real head-turner on any ramp.

All trades considered.

Export, and worldwide delivery are available.
