N580"HH"?? Greg, I think I've heard of this one. If this is the one I'm recalling, then way back in its history (before Raytheon bought it) it used to be named the "Happy Hour" or "Happy Heaven" or something to do with "Happy." (That's where the "HH" in the reg comes from, which is why I'm remembering it.) I'll have to do some sleuthing and maybe its a different one but I'm pretty certain this is the same one I'm thinking of. Either way, this is a fine catch.

Found it! Follow the first link to view a Zane Adams pic of it when it was named "The Good Ship Happy House." Also, it crashed at KGVT in 1993. Follow the second link to read the report.

Just looking at it you can tell this bird has been through some changes, but I didn't think about a crash. (I wonder what kind of radar or other electronics package Raytheon has in the nose cone.) I really appreciate the info, Gary. I had never heard of it before. Thanks a bunch!
