SHORTS


SH3414 - Shorts SD3-60 Sherpa N163Z U.S.D.A. Forest Service Fire & Aviation, Boise, ID

Registered 21-Jan-2016; this aircraft was originally registered to the U.S.F.S. back on 29-Sep-2014, at which point it still remained in storage at Henry Post AAF in Oklahoma. I'm presuming that the recent registration may reflect the aircraft being operationalized, as considerable work was required to make the Sherpa fleet suitable for U.S.F.S. use.
