Photo Comment

This floatplane version of the N3N-3 trainer was given the nickname of 'Yellow Peril' by the trainee Naval pilots. This particular airfame (the BuNo is not original to it) has the distinction of being the first aircraft to be accepted into the National Naval Aviation Museum's permanent collection.
