First registered in 1957 and operated by DH, displaying their titles on the side, until export to Itavia as I-AOVE in September 1961. In 1964 it went to Cimber Air as OY-AFN, then to Prinair as N563PR in 1968. On 5 March 1969 it was vectored into terrain near San Juan/PR by a trainee controller and destroyed with the loss of all on board. Enough of it survived (c/n plate maybe) for a rebuild in 1971, with Lycoming engines, as N575PR. On 24 July 1979 the rebuild was wrecked attempting take-off from St. Croix/USVI at 1000 lbs. overweight and with CG aft of limit.
