Its interesting that that the Robin ZS-MXN is the second Robin DR-400 to have this registration. The first Robin MXN was based at FAVG in the 90's and was subsequently destroyed .. I dont offhand know the details.
In any case, the DR-400 is an aircraft that I hold in very high regard having flown many times in ZS-JSV.

That Albatross is fully serviceable and flies quite regularly.

If I'm not mistaken, the same gentleman that flies that beautiful Robin, also operates a Harvard out of Worcester. And his neighbour is the T28 Trojan, also based at Worcester.
