Registered to Rubi Inc., obviously between the time Gerard Helmer and I photographed it, someone decided it was in need of sprucing up and it got a paint job! Note that in the older photos the reg is painted as N-54G. In this photo the dash has been removed leaving a space between the N and the 5. I read that this a/c was withdrawn from use between 1989 and 1996. This would appear to be incorrect as it was noted operating, at least for some of that period.
Delivered as 53-3285 to the US Air Force and after that went to the US Navy as 153694. After storage at Davis Monthan is was re-registered N7041U in 1988 before ending up as YV-502C. It crashed into the sea off Curacao just 8 months after this picture was taken on 18th September, 1992.
