N496M For Sale by John Buenting
1951 M-18C S/N 246
"It is with heavy heart that I list 496M for sale. I inherited this 1952 Mite from my Dad, Ernie Buenting, in 2015. I already have two other aircraft, and am not flying the Mite enough to justify keeping it. This plane needs to go to a good home with a true Mite enthusiast.
"Many long time WAMM members will remember Ernie and 496M, and to them the plane needs no introduction. Suffice it to say, I have done nothing to alter the plane from the way Dad left it. For those who didn't know this Mite, the WAMM guys say it is one of the best rigged and maintained M18's in existence.
"The airplane just completed a thorough annual guided by the directions from this website's fine contributors. It needs nothing but an enthusiastic pilot! I have attached a few photos, below.
- TTAF 1252
- SMOH 714
"The plane's VREF on the AOPA website is $16,400, but any serious offer from a Mite enthusiast will be considered.
"496M is located in western NC at 1A5, and I can be reached at 828.506.3774 or email@example.com"
