American Aviation Noorduyn Norseman VI
In 1947 All
American thought to increase the capacity of the air mail pick-up
substituting, (or at least augmenting) the Stinsons with a fleet of
Noorduyn Norsemans. In
the event this aircraft did not
perform nearly as well as the trusty SC-10Cs and the idea was
dropped.. To my
knowledge NC33177 was the only one of its breed to be actually
company. It was originally a Mk VI (as I state in the heading)
but was converted to
Mk V standard before being delivered to AAA. The pick up gear can be
seen under rear fuselage.
