Comments: Remained on strength with the FA Dominicana until 1983. Acquired by Brian O'Farrel and later by Selby R. Burch. Restored to flying condition in the markings of the commanding officer of the 118th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron (The Black Lightnings). Superb restoration that was presented with the Grand Champion World War Two Warbird at the 1997 Sun 'n Fun event.
