Photo Comment

First delivered to DHY (Devlet Hava Yollari) as TC-HAS, the airline was re-named THY (Türk Hava Yolları ) in 1956. Sold in the USA in 1966 first as N486R, then N508FW with Wright Air Lines in 1967. Converted to a Riley Heron in 1968, the aircraft later served with Swift Aire as N415SA from 1974 until withdrawn in 1980. Jumping to today, the aircraft is active associated with the Västerås Flygmuseum (Västerås Aviation Museum) in Sweden at the time of uploading.
