53-7920 • N2297N



53-7920 US Army # 1461. L-20 No: 462. Command A-4. Delivered 29-Nov-1954. Built as L-20A and re-designated U-6A in 1962.

53-7920 For sale @ Coleman Barracks, Mannheim–Sandhofen, Germany. Seen 28-Aug-1972.

Note: We now have a sighting of this aircraft at Coleman Barracks, Germany in Aug-1972 which throws doubt on the attachment to the Delaware NG, particularly as the photos of it in this garb are all in the early 1980’s when owned by Stephen Roberts. It would seem that the military marks were pseudo.
