I have a beautiful Pawnee for sale at the end of the month. Probably one of the nicest Pawnee's you will find. The Yellow Gorilla as we call it is 180 hp and you will not find a better one. Bob

The Pawnee was totally rebuilt and had 17 hours on it since rebuild. The engine has about 900 hours since total rebuild. I will confirm all the hours and post the actual info tomorrow. The plane was not used to spray with after rebuild, I had it converted to tow. Some here have seen this plane and can confirm the condition. All AD's have been complied with, no hopper, I towed yesterday with it also just completed annual. Asking 51 K, will sell with or without Tost hook. Bob

There will be a nice Pawnee 235HP for sale later this year when my Gliding Club here in the UK replaces its towplane with a lightweight Eurofox. The club has owned this Pawnee for 20 years. It had a zero hours engine rebuild about 500 hours ago. All mods done. Fuselage recovered last year. Fully set up for towing. 4 bladed prop and silencer fitted, with spare 2 bladed prop if needed. Originally US registered. Picture on the club website. Plenty more details from me if you want them.

Happy to discuss if you wish.

No, the Yellow Gorilla went to the best place that it could ever hope to go NCSA.
