    I think that’s the one I used to fly and take care of, SN 11. It was registered N940Y. I heard it was sitting derelict in a hangar in or near Bellingham.

    My 2016 F-150 XLT 4WD was $40,000. Hard to find one for that today. I was doing some flying for the Cessna dealer in Anchorage in the early 80’s when the price for a new 206 hit $100,000. We all...
