Hi ! ..I just found out what happened to an old friend ...Its a Dee Howard ...there were only 15 made ( for the Cia really ) . The Howie is the best aircraft I have ever been in . The flight envalope was designed for Short take off / Landing , fast low level multi terrain performance but also could fly high too . Thats why it had a pressurised cabin . And an inflatable leading edge ( the wings ! ) for de- iceing ..... The ultimate special ops aircraft . To get into it there was no step or ladder needed . Handy for renditions or stuff like that :) . The Howie was built like an E Type Jaguar , but way more sophisticated ...but the sound and feel would be similar .
So the Howie has been repatriated to the Usa ...she flew back across the Atlantic . Probably to the relief of many folks. That " may " include a guy from Africa , who was found sedated in a crate at Standstead Airport decades ago , ready for export .
So here is what it looks like ..

I am not sure that the present owners would allow that . For historical reasons . :) Like any lady with great curves and and a lot of power , she has a hidden past and her secrets are Jealously guarded . So I will just blow her a kiss from here and pretend that I never knew her :lol: .

Pilots of specialist aircraft like to fly .. :-D ...Without any ado here is a glimpse of what what some pilots that fly Hercs to Heilocopters do in their time off from bothersome tasks .. :wink: ... Just to stay up to scratch ! Just an outdated example ... Ok ! :
