Like several other Beechcraft Janets, this plane was purchased by DET 1, AFEREG directly from the Beech Aircraft Corporation in December of 1983. Certification forms were filed with the FAA by John W. Broadaway, “Airlift Manager,” in early 1984.
In 1986, the same thing happened to this plane as N654BA: for unknown reasons, Broadaway, now “Program Manager” for the USAF, sold the plane back to Beechcraft. Again, Beech Aerospace Services in turn sold the plane to one “Horace William Horton” of PO Box 27465, Las Vegas, Nevada on October 28, 1986. In 1989, Horton sold the plane directly to the Department of the Air Force, PO Box 459, Clearfield, Utah 84015, which is presumably attached to Hill Air Force Base, an Air Force Materiel Command base north of Salt Lake City (Air Force Materiel Command, headquartered at Wright Patterson AFB is in charge of the Air Force Flight Test Center).
1996 saw David D. Palay, “Program Manager” change the listed address of the aircraft to “Box 1504, Layton, UT.”
