Built in 1927 and fitted with an OX-5 engine. Post-war fitted with Continental W670 engine and maintained airworthy. I flew in it this day when it was 79 years old. This type was used on internal US Air Mail Route C.A.M.5 in the late 1920s. and it wears Fleet No. 3 to record that era.
Designed by Max Harlow in 1938 whilst he was an instructor at the Pasadena Junior College in California, hence the PJC designation. This was the sixth of 11 built of this all-metal retractable u/c design. Several were impressed by the USAAF in WW2 as UC-80 communications aircraft. This example served the CAA as NC15.
Built for supply to Siam Air Force but impounded by USAAC before shipment in 1941 as 41-19085 and used as an advanced trainer with P-68 designation. Post-war flew as NX37498, XB-KUU and N68822 before acquisition by EAA as N840. Recently restored to flying condition.
Version of the NR-D Cadet built in quantity in WW2 for the USAAF as target drones and painted in this distinctive red scheme. Many survivors were sold post-war to private flyers, including this now preserved example which wears its 44-68334 serial on its fin.
