Cessna 208B grand caravan / supervan
The PH-JBR originally started flying in 1999 as a cargo aircraft in Canada. Thereafter, Texas Turbines bought the aircraft, provided a high-performance upgrade and sold it to the Paracentrum.
In 2016, the Transatlantic cross over was made by Jasper Rienks together with Edwin Boshof [één of twee ff-en? Staat hier ook anders dan bij de JAS] and his son. The JBR was equipped with benches for some time, but these were taken out eventually. Jumpers prefer to sit on the airplane floor.
