This aircraft was then aquired by a father and son team around 2006 for the purpose of fixing and flying the aircraft but that never came to be because the father passed and they never got to finish this project. Around 2012 the craft was again on the market, hoping someone could dedicate the time to it and fly it. This included all of its documentation and specs and all of the parts to complete it except the engine but including the pusher type propeller.
