Again- apologies for the link (it should take you directly to the Commander vintage photos, if not they are a little past halfway down the page.

DonV- some pics of the original 980 decal on wingtip available.

Regarding this specific pic, never seen a 'side facing' seat in the back like that!?

And a vintage 2014 980 story:

Can translate using chrome.

95052? Looks like the story was from 2014... I hope the airplane made it's way back to service and isn't just moldering down there somewhere...

Those are great pictures! Too bad they are not higher resolution scans-- I'm sure the original ones were 8x10s.

Regarding the seat, as I recall, in the 1000 the seats had the ability to track out and rotate like that. I think that was true for all of the passenger seats in the back?

Bruce, is that a sticker or is there a template for that lettering? I also want to do the correct "980" on the wingtips, or at least something similar.

Its a sticker that we re-created.  They looked nice to me - still looking for the pic. If you would like to acquire some, Id call Cameron in parts: 309-697-6300

When I get around to painting my 980 (maybe later this year), I will follow up with you. I'd like to have the stickers-- I think they look good as well.

Sorry, i am a little late to this question, going through my photos and resize this one to show our logo that Byerly created for us.  A great job!

That looks great! Airplane looks great as well. Is that the factory 980 paint scheme?

Don't think the paint curled at the tail Donv- ours is original and is almost a straight line.
