14-19-3A 260A N8876R
Bellancas have been produced (since 1951) by a
bewildering number of 'take-over-the-design'
entities. This publicity shot was obtained from International
Aircraft Manufacturing Inc
in 1966, the
name under which Downer Aircraft Industries (itself a merger of
Aviation Corporation) had reorganized in 1964. The 14-19-3A was
14-19-3 with a swept fin and rudder, and sans the ubiquitous trademark
endplate fins of
Bellancas. It also had squared off side windows.
Some 114 were built by International.
The model 260
series ('B' and 'C' models were also produced) was eventually replaced
Viking 300 (q.v. next entry).
N8876R was active until 1999 when it was withdrawn
from active use.
