This Sedan, manufactured in 1948, is based in southern Michigan, USA. Below is a description of the plane as of September 2008:
Total time since new: 2013 hours. Continental C-145 engine with 303 hours since major overhaul. Nice wooden seaplane propeller. (An 80" metal seaplane prop is seperately offered for sale.) The plane was completely refurbished, in 1997, and comes with EDO 2000 floats that were rebuilt in 2000. Dual seaplane doors. Aluminum tanks. Airwolf spin-on oil filter. 8,50" Cleveland wheels and brakes. King KT-76A transponder with mode C. Electronics International (E.I.) oil pressure and temperature. A good, solid Sedan which is regularly flown and has a current annual.
Instead of selling the entire plane, in Spring of 2010, its owner was able to sell shares of it to a couple of friends, so he and they will continue to operate 15AC-271. The way to go, Jim! Photo 07 was taken during Oshkosh 2014.
