USAAF Serial# 41-21726
Number 41-21726 (s/n 5565) came out of the factory and was accepted by the AAF in April, 1942. It’s unit assignments were Lemoore, Stockton, Lancaster (CA), Marana and Kingman (AZ). At Kingman it was turned over to the RFC in 1945. There is evidence that it was stored at Eagle Field before going to a Sacramento crop duster. It spent most of it’s service life at Lancaster. At the time that I acquired the remains of the airplane, it had the original yellow and blue under the subsequent silver. Both types of marking were still intact. It still had “Kingman AAF” on the instrument panel access doors. Coarse brush marks were clearly visible from daubing out the original “meatballs”.
