American Airlines     Stinson A   NC14141                    (c/n  9100)

                                                       NC14141 was the first of 15 Stinson Model As ordered by the airline in late 1934. However, due
                                                       to changes required by American, they were not "first in service" with this new tri-motored machine.
                                                       Both Delta and Central Airlines (a forerunner of Capital Airlines) beat them to it.   The aircraft was an
                                                       excellent short route stage performer and was as fast as its competitors of the day - the Boeing 247
                                                       and the Douglas DC-2.
