    I saw Cessna 207 Serial #0001 once in Arizona. I can't believe it is still around.

    I've seen it in person, it lives in the hangar next door to mine actually.

    It's the first 172 that's in Quincy. I don't know if the first 207 (N9100D) is still working in Page with the other 207s there, but it's registered to American Aviation in Woods Cross UT.

    Yeah I don't know much about it beyond the video. I just am based at Quincy and happened to see in an open hangar door one day and there it was- same hangar as seen in the video. Saw it taxiing back in from a runway the other day so I imagine it's still flying.

    That is the company it belonged to when I saw it. Owner lived in Utah, company operated out of Page airport. Amazing it has survived all these years. 207s live a pretty hard life.
