This was one of 23 Skywagons that the California CHP used to police the state before they were sold off surplus about 10 years ago and were replaced by new 206's. Excellent, no expense spared government maintenance. All of them were groundlooped at some time (Probably why they went to 206's) and anything they needed, they got. This plane was sold to a new owner in Atlanta when it was retired. That is where it has lived since it was in CA. It is now back in Placerville at Skywagons.com LLC. The ferry pilot that went to get it was the retired CHP officer that flew it 3000 plus hours as his work plane. See a few old photos from the wall of the restaurant in Auburn where it used to be based.
