A Canadian-built PT-26A, original serial FV702, in the markings of the 'Little Norway' flying school in Canada. Formerly CF-CFV with the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, and N73520 earlier in 2019. Fairchild c/n T43-4536 is reported for an earlier issue of N73520, and this c/n is listed by the French CAA.. The name is on the port side only. Other preserved Cornells have worn the same markings.
