This plane is not here at Placerville but is local enough to go and see it where it is. Ex-military owner/pilot has maintained and flown this plane for many years. It is a late model Apache with most of the Aztec mods so it is more like an Aztec now. 250 HP Lycoming 540 engines. The long nose, the bigger vertical fin. A very robust and utilitarian load hauling light twin with good times and equipment. Logs missing prior to 1990 but TT is correct and verified. No hail, no corrosion., LLC
