Re: Stans Buochs (LSZC/BXO) 2019

I saw this aircraft as well a few weeks ago (log to follow...). The official civil register gives the following details:
PC-7 MkII
S/N 1000
Year 2019
Registered 9-8-2019
So this may be a new-built example. Attrition replacement for a yet-unknown county?

Regards,
Joris
