CESSNA 208B GRAND CARAVAN/SUPERVAN
The PH-BSU was once obtained from Skydive Rotterdam (Flying Dutchmen) in an airplane swap. The BSU flew in the USA for 15 years (serial: 208B0957) before crossing over to the Netherlands in 2005.
The windows have been built in afterwards, which was done when the default engine was replaced by the high-performance Texas Turbine model. After the engine upgrade, the climbing rate increased substantially and the BSU is one of the fastest possible configurations to climb up high.
