Maybe I'll get lucky and he will paint it in factory default stripes.

Good to know. Seems like 3 years is more than enough to get a paint job done, but you never know...

Gotta think positive DonV!  Although I thought Bruce mentioned it went to the Arizona skydive company owner.   Surely I can send a quick email asking :)...

980 is not a great skydiving platform!

Don I remember reading somewhere someone jumping from the baggage compartment of either a 840 or 980.

Yes, they did some sort of jump from the baggage to set some record. I don't remember the details but I'm sure google could find it.

I also vaguely recall that it didn't go well.

I expect it to close this time to a fellow member here and knowledgeable Commander operator.  Only extraordinary circumstances kept this one around for the extra months but Iím excited to see it go to a great midwestern 🏠 .

Need more east coast owners!   

Not related to thread, but I've certainly noticed an uptick lately on flights.

I have to ask, what was your plane doing in Naples and not visiting Naples Jet Center?!  Was it something I said?

Valid point.  You can blame Andy Weiner, was his trip on this one.  I'll certainly make a comment when I see him.  Rookie move!
