Photo Comment

This Goose has been on display at the museum since at least 1995. It is often quoted as ex N327 c/n 1051, but that is not correct. N327 was still operational at that time, and it crashlanded and burned during a training flight at Penn Yan, NY on 15 Feb 2005. The wreck was sold and was under rebuild in Pittsford, NY in late 2005. Still there by Jan 2010, current status unclear. The real NC16913 was c/n 1004, sold in Argentina in 1947. The actual identity of the aircraft in this photo is not known.
