SCFA planned to restore this cargo aircraft and bring it to Switzerland to fly passengers on the European airshow circuit. The former U.S. Navy and Aerochago airplane was ferried from Santo Domingo to Avra Valley, AZ, where it arrived on January 7, 2001. Restoration was well underway in August 2002 when the SCFA suspended efforts due to the FAA's decision not to issue a standard airworthiness certificate as the result of 9/11. The aircraft was stripped of useful parts by SCFA, and later HARS, before being disassembled and moved to Bridgewater, Virginia, where it was stored in 2018.
