One of a small number converted to VT-29E standard, this aircraft had been in use by MATS as a VIP transport prior to serving with the National Guard - its serial 51-5171 still visible. At the time of the photo the aircraft was officially registered as N840M with Lee County Mosquito Control, but it had not yet been painted as such. In the end they never operated it and sold it in the early 1980s. Photographed at their Fort Myers base in 1980.
