This aircraft had some great nose art on her, called Aurora Explorer. I had the privilege of being part of the crew to deliver her to AMARC along with Joe Tyler, her crew chief of nearly 14 years (we did bring him back with us!). I grew up next door to Joe and he was, along with my father, a huge influence in my interest and career in aviation. I got to fly this aircraft with Joe on numerous program deployments, including a number of weeks each on Aruba and on Antigua as part of the Aerospace Radio Propagation analysis program. An article was published in Air & Space in late 1992, I believe, covering some of the studies that were being made with the data we collected. Scientists and professors from the University of Alaska were part of the team. It was quite an honor.
