At her home base on the Kentish coast, this was one of a trio of the Friendship derivative briefly operated by Skyways before they went out of business later that year. New with the evocative Mohawk Airlines as N7817M in 4.67 and sold by Allegheny to Wien in 5.74. After gaining the cargo door she came to England in 8.78, passing on to TABA following Skyways' demise as PT-LBG. Very derelict at Belém by 2004
