in Cairns, QLD. Delivery was delayed more than one week by engine
failure at Majuro*, Marshall Islands. Replacement engine was flown
out from the U.S. Mr Piggott had intended to operate a charter/air
safari business as "Air Heart Safaris" but this did not eventuate.
The aircraft was based at Mareeba and used occasionally for parachuting,
retaining its American registration. As a visiting foreign registered
aircraft, N712FM had to be "exported" and "imported" annually. To
satisfy this requirement, the aeroplane was flown to Port Moresby
and back to Mareeba. |
* This was originally reported as happening in Nauru but an article by Ray Piggott in the Mareeba Northern Star of April 2005 states that the engine failure occurred during the run-up prior to departure from Majuro.
