Photo Comment

Originally developed for rugged Canadian bush country operations, the Norseman's qualities were recognised by the USAAF and so Noorduyn produced 762 examples for the USAAF before WWII ended. On Dec. 15, 1944, a UC-64A disappeared on a flight from England to France with bandleader Maj. Glenn Miller on board. The aircraft was never found. This Norseman on display at the National Museum of the USAF is actually 44-70296 but marked as a plane based in Alaska late in WWII.
