The Camair Twin Navion was not a particularly successfull attempt to improve upon the well-liked, but slightly under-powered, Ryan navion. In the end only 33 examples were produced with this one on display at the super mid-Atlantic Air Museum.
The sole surviving example of a Spratt Controlwing unconventional light aircraft. A small series was built in the 1960/70s, some having a seaplane hull. All had a pusher engine at the rear and the wings could be moved in flight to provide control. Side-by-side seating for pilot and passenger.
Preserved in Capital Airlines colours. It was ordered by Capital Airlines as N7471 but never delivered to them. Was used by a number of operators until it went to the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in 1992. Last flew in the mid-1990s.
Isn't this *almost* like one of those old shots from the 50s & 60s? A classic prop on the ramp, baggage carts and service vehicles in attendance, passenger stairs and a small terminal building in the background. OK, so my geeky aeroplane imagination has run a bit wild but, nevertheless, this was a fantastic day out at this museum.
This Avenger served with both United States Navy and the Royal Canadian Navy as 53638. After a demob career as a sprayer/tanker in Canada it was acquired by the super Mid-Atlantic Air Museum at Spaatz Field.
After testing this CCW-5, now on display as part of the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum, the conclusion was reached that the advantage in lift and field length performance achieved by the channel wing did not offset the layout's many deficiencies resulting from the increased drag profile and weight penalties.
Former United Airlines painted in fake German Luftwaffe colors with "Das Hump Jumper Flüg" nose art. Had been used for spares by the Mid Atlantic Air Museum for the restoration of their Viscount N7471 before being scrapped in 1999.
The museum acquired this aircraft in 1983, and for many years it was their flying Neptune N45309. In 1996 or 1997 it was withdrawn from the warbird circuit and became a static display item at the museum, as seen here.
