The Evangel 4500-300 was built by the Evangel Aircraft Corp of Orange City, IA from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. It is a STOL design intended for bush operations, notably for use by missionary aviation groups providing humanitarian services to remote locations in South America. Only eight were built, and a 9th airframe was never completed. The one seen here is the prototype c/n 001. It has "Golovin" written on the wingtip, referring to Golovin, AK where it once served. This aircraft has been an Alaska resident for many years, but it was registered to Jim Salazar from Pasadena, CA on 25 April 2018, and may by now have moved south.
