Airworthy Fairchild 24 at Planes of Fame Air Museum. First produced in 1932 for personal and business use, the Model 24 was available with inline and radial engines. It was a popular aircraft and over two thousand were built. The sturdy undercarriage construction allowed for operation from unimproved grass airfields. Twin floats could also be fitted to the aircraft. The C8F was one of 40 built that was powered by a 145-hp Fairchild Ranger inline engine. During WW2 this aircraft served as a trainer at Coffeyville Army Air Field in Kansas.

A real rarity, painted to represent a Charleston-based USCG J2K-2 which was written off in May 1941. The RAF serial FS614 is sometimes reported as a previous identity but this seems to be uncertain.

This Argus was built at Hagerstown as 44-83159 and shipped across the Atlantic aboard the SS Loch Dee, arriving in Port Said in Nov. 1944. It then flew with the RAF as KK502 from Hussein Dey in Algeria until June 1946, when it was flown to US Army Payne Field (now Cairo airport) for disposal. It became F-OAFY with the French in North Africa and then CN-TNV with the Morrocan Royal Aero Club at Tit Meli as a parachute plane. After languishing in a warehouse in Hamburg for many years it is now under restoration to flight by Classic Trainers as many of the type flew in Czechoslovakia post-WWII.
