I had it logged as Southwind Airlines. Went to Air Pony Express in Mar 2002. It was destroyed in an accident just after take-off from Fort Lauderdale Executive FL on 13 Jun 2005. Because of not being able to feather a failed engine the aircraft was unable to maintain altitude. The captain force landed it in a residential area on NE 56th Street. The 3 occupants survived.
