The is the only B-239 in the world is reputedly
at Dublin airport (this excludes the HUMU, a 239 fuselage mated to wooden
wings that is on display in Finland). It may be under wraps however. It
was recovered remarkedly intact by a for-profit recovery group under
questionable cir***stances and is now supposedly languishing in Ireland,
partially disassembled, possibly deteriorating more than it ever did under
water, being offered for sale for an exorbitant amount (unless a rich
Brewster Buff fan can be found for which price would be no object--that
would be me except for the rich part). It is thought that it might be in a
building owned by VAP at the Dublin airport.
Pictures of this aircraft in its current condition or a description of what
remains of this aircraft would be extremely welcome by Brewster Buff fans.
