Slide scan. This is what happens when a friend buys an ex-drug runner, restores everything except the paint in my hangar & then leaves for a week. Flew it like this for 3 months.The whole story is very funny

The most original paint-job ever seen!! By the way the left engine was shut-down for the photo or there's something wrong with it??

The only thing that looks nice on that bird is the leather seating.

The plane itself is simply incredible:
-one engine out
-rusty
-the message "caution EXPENSIVE propeller"
-overall paint scheme (or the lack of it)
This plane simply rules :))

Such a different look than when we flew in Triple Two Juliet Sierra ( as John ( Silvio ) Adamo the owner/pilot called it )! I believe it was over 35 yrs ago that John flew us to Puerto Rico, Bahamas and St. Thomas with him. Loved flying in this plane esp. being able to see so much of the landscape unlike the big airliners where you see nothing.

Must be a Single-Engine only pilot...can't turn on the other one til his flight instructor signs off on his checkride.

Funny stuff. Hope the aircraft is in a bit better shape by now.

Fantastic detail. Great textures and colors. Great composition: the irony of such a gorgeous classic design surviving hard times but anxiously looking forward to the makeover.

Anyone notice the "Mary Kay" label on the nose compartment door?....as in Mary Kay cosmetics which uses pink as their corporate color, so to speak.
