Star Air Service   Curtiss Robin C-1  NC387K      (c/n  546)


                                            Star Air Service was founded in the early 1930s in Anchorage, Alaska, as the result of the amal-
                                            gamation of several smaller carriers.  This Curtiss Robin was their second aircraft.   The illustration
                                            below shows the same aircraft somewhat later, after the large star had been adopted as the fledgling
                                            airline's trademark.  These images are from the book "Sourdough Sky:  A Pictorial History of
                                            Flights and Flyers in the Bush
Country" by Stephen Mills. (Superior Publishing Co, 1969).  I am
