Star Airlines Bellanca CH-400 Skyrocket   NC10795         (c/n  622)


                                           The CH-400 was basically a Bellanca CH-300 with more power.  Normally powered by a
                                           420 h.p. Pratt & Whitney Wasp C-1 engine, the CH-400 did not possess much better
                                           cruising speed than the older Pacemaker, but the extra power was noticeable in the take-off
                                           performance.  For this reason it was ideally suited for tough Alaskan "bush" operators.   Star
                                           Airlines had this one plus NC781W also.   This image is from the Ted Spencer collection
