This 1949 Sedan's former US registration N1394H was cancelled in October 1980 and the plane exported to Ireland. The last registered US owner was Darrell Kight of Tucson, Arizona. Today, its homebase is Birr airfield (EIBR) in central Ireland. Gordon Hendrick and Michael Farrell are taking good care of it. They worked on its restoration for several years. On March 4, 2009, it successfully completed its first post-restoration flight. Congratulations to everybody involved! You brought an absolutely gorgeous Sedan back into the skies!
