I have pictures of N9150T and N9233T. Would you like me to email them to you.


David Bennett, e-mail, 08.04.2024 21:08

N9233T was also at White Industries on 2 May 2017.

By 2nd May 2017, N9150T was at White Industries in Bates City and not in good shape.

Some small corrections to the article, it states that “Nine Cheyenne III delivered”. There were only eight aircraft delivered fully modified and they were Cheyenne IIIA’s with the PT6A-61 engines in 1986. They were designated as PA42-720R’s. The eight aircraft were N9091J, N9279A, N9159Y, N9150T, N9233T, N9150T, N9142B, and N9085U. I flew six of the eight at the Miami Air Branch and Jacksonville Air Branch while they were in the inventory. The last three were retired and sold at auction in 2013 from the Jacksonville Air and Marine Branch. It had the An/AAQ16 Hughes FLIR which was upgraded to the Westcam MX-15 EOIR which was mounted in the nose extension in front of the nose landing gear.

One small contradiction in this article;
Nine Cheyenne Ills delivered to the US Drug Enforcement Administration, fitted with AN/APG-66 radar and a ventral FLIR, are used for day- and nighttime surveillance missions. They are known as Customs High Endurance Tracker (CHET) aircraft.
The 9 CHET aircraft were deliver to U.S. Customs not the DEA else it would have been nicknamed DHET.

The Cheyenne III was designed and built at the Lakeland,FL plant...It was never assembled in Lock Haven

Correction, Garrett engines.

The photo your using for the Cheyenne III is actually a Piper Cheyenne IV, which utilized Air Research engines.
