Mitsubishi MU-2B-36A (MU-2N) Marquise N866MA
Like most aircraft, the basic MU-2B design
was stretched and improved. From a technical
engineering and bill of material standpoint all the MU-2s were
basically derivatives of the MU-2B.
from a marketing standpoint the various derivatives of the basic design
were given a
letter variant. The MU-2B-36A above was known as the MU-2N, and
at that time the name
"Marquise" was introduced.
Including military versions, over 800
of them were built. This example
was basking in
the El Paso sun
in March of 1981.
