t's tragic to see XV177 and XV209 for sale in "Psst you wanna buy a Herc" detailed in https://ex-mod-aircraft.com/
Many happy hours in both frames. When the last 6 aircraft were up for disposal 3G Aviation were asked if they could be ferried to a "Central American country" avoiding U.S. airspace. No sweat we responded, mentally calculating the Lajes - Bermuda - Carib pond crossing. Sadly in vain. Don't think I could be happy "glamping" in a fuselage section of either frame. I could wake up panicking that I'd missed a 30West estimate.
