Fleet Page reaches 80 aircraft

I hit a milestone today – I added the 80th aircraft for the Fleet page.

I talked to Jason today, He owns N678ZB (bu. 4450) and he bases it in Towanda, Pennsylvania. UPDATE: Photo of 4450 is up on the fleet page.

Jason gave me a couple of details about his aircraft and history. He acquired it from had it painted by Mike Posey and it has a Pratt and Whitney R-1340 engine. Is this the only airworthy N3N with a -1340 out there? I would love to hear if there are any others, leave a comment…

There are still more aircraft out there – I have about 20 leads to follow up on right now. The search is getting more challenging since each aircraft I find reduces the pool of unknowns. Every find is becoming a major event for me. My best guess: The N3N fleet is between 90 and 100 complete aircraft, with the total slowly growing as more restorations are completed. I have a list of 3 restorations that are nearing completion – I will be starting a “Projects” page shortly so we can encourage those of you who are actively working on your aircraft.

Comments are open, feel free to post your thoughts.

    Wouldn’t it be great if the T-6 fleet didn’t have a place to park because Warbirds was filled with N’s?
