This aircraft was the last of 61 Reims / Cessna 337 TBGs built. Spectrum Aircraft modified it by replacing the two piston engines with a single rear mounted Pratt & Whitney PT-6 turbo prop, lengthening the cabin ahead of the wing and a new extended cargo nose. Registered N15SA, the Spectrum SA-550 Spectrum-One first flew on February 1, 1983. Planned certification the following year did not happen and the aircraft was acquired by Basler Flight Services in 1992. Further modifications increased the Max weight to 5,952 lb (2,700 kg), but no sales followed.
The second production Cessna 337 deserved a better fate than being stripped and cut up for scrap, which is what happened later. Still on the CCAR years after because Transport Canada will only delete if the owner requests in writing. That's why there's so much dead wood.
The Skymaster, or "Mixmaster" as it is known with its push me, pull me engine configuration flies like a brick on one engine, so the pilots tell me. It is a nice bird though even if it is a bit loud. Operated by Sterling Pacific Air Ltd.
