PP-PAP  Fairchild A-942-A                                (c/n  9402)


                                     In 1935 Pan American ordered six of these unique little amphibians for their services up the
                                     Amazon River.  It was known at Fairchild as the Model 91 "Jungle Clipper", although the
                                     correct designation was the A-942-A..  In the event it turned out that the sparsely operated
                                     route from Para to Manaus did not require all six and only two ever went to Pan do Brasil.
                                     This machine was originally NC14744. (Of the remaining four, two went to Japan and two
                                     were sold privately).   PP-PAP was written off in March 1939 when it sank near Belem,
                                     State of Para.
