D-EPTB Maule MT-7-235 Super Rocket c/n 10004C - Naval Air Station Nordholz in Germany - 17 August 2013 N.A.S. Nordholz (EDXN)

The Maule MT-7-235 Super Rocket is a single piston engine, five-seated, steel cage construction, high wing STOL aircraft with conventional tail and tailwheel. However, five-seated is not really a pleasure for longer flights due to the lack of space in the cabin of this taildragger. The Maule MT-7-235 is a further development of the 1983 Maule M-7 and was approved by the FAA on 20 March 1992. The Maule M-7 itself was evolved from the 1957 built Maule M-4 Bee Dee. The Maule M7-series are built and developed by Maule Air Inc. in Moultrie, Georgia, USA. Next to the fixed landing gear taildragger the M-7 series is available as an amphibian aeroplane and as a floatplane. In 2003, a further development of the Maule M-7, the Maule M-9 was introduced. Since, the Maule M-9 replaced the Maule M-7 in production.

On 27 January 1994, the Maule MT-7-235 Super Rocket s/n 10004C was registered N39TB in the USA. On 19 August 1999, registration N39TB was cancelled as exported to Germany and registered D-EPTB in Germany. On 17 August 2013, Maule MT-7-235 Super Rocket D-EPTB was seen at Naval Air Station Nordholz during the spottersday prior the Air Day Nordholz "100 Jahre Marineflieger".
