Western Air Express   Sikorsky S-38 A  NC8021     (c/n  14-5)


                                              Upon acquiring Pacific Marine Airways, the first thing Corliss Moseley, COO of Western did
                                              was to augment the existing motley equipment by ordering a new Sikorsky S-38 amphibian.  In
                                              1931 WAE's contract to provide service to Catalina Island was not renewed by the Wrigley family
                                              (owners of the island) and the line and its assets were sold off to Wilmington-Catalina Airlines.
