Notes: on N211WW.  These comments came from Paul Poppenhager on 02 July 2007.

“Hi, my name is Paul Poppenhager from Old Town, Florida. I purchased (N211WW) from the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol) at Maxwell AFB., on 1-May-1979 for the sum of $26,500.00. I flew her over 1,000hrs, mostly hauling Sky Divers. I sold her in 1987 and delivered her to North Bay, Ontario, Canada. Out of the 40 or so aircraft I have owned, the Beaver was the best by far, and I still regret selling her. Great site and thanks for the memories.”
