All American Aviation  Beech D-18C   NC80363               (c/n  A-161)


In 1946 All American extended their mail pick-up fleet to include three Beech D-18Cs.
                                         One, NC80011 was also used for other experiments (see following entry).    NC80363
                                         is illustrated above with its pick up boom, whilst  below, the third machine, NC80010, is
                                         seen making a mail pick up. The Beechs were not retained long, and shortly afterward All
                                         American became a bone fide third level carrier with a modest fleet of DC-3s.
