being able to visit a museum and, walking around the corner of a
hangar, you find this! Wow....
that is what happened when our roving Russian correspondent Igor
Kolokolov visited the Alaska Aviation heritage Museum in
Anchorage, Alaska. This hull belonged to S.43 number NC15062
serial no. 4302 and has had somewhat of a chequered career with a
number of operators including Avalon Air transport and
Inter-Island airways of Hawaii. I just think it would make the
ultimate flying enthusiasts office! Oh, if only I had the chance!!
the interior details of the hull in these views showing the
strakes, bulkhead and longerons; very helpful for any modelers
wishing to add details to a model.
thanks as always for the use of these images goes to Igor.
