Pacusan Dreamboat made a couple of significant flights. In December 1945 it broke the transcontinental speed record from Burbank to New York. In October 1946 it flew non-stop from Hawaii to Cairo over the North Pole. This photo may show the crew being honoured in Washington on their return from Cairo but this is not definite.

The Sikorsky R-5 (S-48) was an improved R-4 (VS-316), the first of five XR-5s flying on 18 August 1943. The first 26 out of 60 production R-5As were given the YR-5A designation and 43-46604 must have been one of nine YR-5As delivered before the end of WWII. The design was enlarged and further improved in 1946 as the R-5F (S-51). Redesignated as an H-5A in 1948, 43-46604 was involved in an accident in New Mexico on 20 September 1949.

Kaydets stored at Hill Field after the war. Apart from one USAAF Stearman PT-13D (42-17672 / 2D27, c/n 75-5835), several US Navy N2S-5 Kaydets can be read. In the top left corner is 52676 / 121, and in the top middle row are (left to right) 52726 / 116, 52731 / 109, 52640 / 29x and 52713 / 93x. In the bottom middle row are (left to right) 52836 / 164, 52758 / 134, 52741 / 125 and 52827 / 154. They all belong to cancelled batch 52627-53049, many of which were apparently built (for the USAAF?) and partially painted, but not delivered. Photo from: Utah State Historical Society
