Northern Air Transport  Ford 5-AT-C  NC8419                (c/n  58)


                                         Records indicate that Noel & Eielson Wien founded Northern Air Transport in 1929.  However,
                                         they had previously operated as Wien Airways.   Clearly by the time this Ford Trimotor was ac-
                                         quired, the line was operating as Northern A/T.   This ex-Northwest Airways machine had been
                                         purchased from Star Airlines.  The ropey old image above came from a scan from the book
                                         "Alaska Bush Pilots in the Float Country" by  Satterfield, Archie, & Lloyd Jarman. (Superior
                                         Publishing. 1969).
