N337gh

Hello
As I said on my presentation I am looking for a nice P337.
I have one in France That I will visit in the next days.

There is one in Italy ident : N337GH
It 's a 1973 Reims

As It flys in US I am wondering if anyone has some comments on it or knows it

Thanks

Alain

Just because it has an N# registration does not mean it flies in the US. It just means its subject to FAA regulations. There are many aircraft around the world with N# registration that will never see the actual USA. The fact that it was built in France tells me its likely never been outside of Europe.

Is the plane you're looking at?

Photo from July 17, 2021 - Looks like someone tried to do an O2 conversion on the paint job, then changed their mind and removed some of the stickers? You can see that the paint is darker where the stickers were applied.

The de-ice boots look pretty tired.

I also found an older photo that seems to show the stickers in place. Aircraft is sitting nose-high, as if the front engine has been removed.

Look closely at the rear gear clamshell doors - they appear to be welded or somehow permanently closed. As if the plane now identifies as a 336? VERY STRANGE!

Do you have more recent photos? This thing looks like it could be a large project.
