Colonial Western Airways   Pitcairn PA-5 Mailwing  NC3835        (c/n 9)


                                            Here's an intrepid airman who looks like he is enjoying his job.  By 1928 Colonial Western had
                                            augmented its Fairchild FC-2s with Pitcairn Mailwings (and later Super Mailwings) which were
                                            designed exclusively for the carriage of mail.   On the original of this print (acquired from Colonial
                                            Airlines in 1949) "CAM 20" can be seen on the fuselage.  This air mail route ran from Cleveland
                                            to Albany, new York, with a stop in Erie, Pa.
