PK-AFU  Sikorsky S-43-W                                    (c/n  4353)


                                     KNILM operated two of the twin tailed version of the Sikorsky S-43 in 1940, just before
                                     the Japanese invasion.   The S-43-W variant (only five were built) differed from earlier S-43s
                                     insofar as they were powered by 760 h.p. Wright Cyclone engines (as opposed to the normal
                                     fitting of P & W Hornets).  Pan Am had a couple of them in China.  All were probably captured
                                     by the Japanese.
