A 1948 Sedan with a 180 hp engine conversion. Pictured on hydraulically operated wheels/skis at Lake Hood, Anchorage, Alaska, USA (Pictures 01-03) and mounted on EDO 2000 floats on Long Lake, Willow, Alaska (Pictures 04-16). In picture 06 the owner George Murphy, his wife Dorthia and their dog are posing for our camera. With approximately 12'000 hours flight time in N1283H, George must be THE most experienced Sedan pilot around. He has also been a pilot for the Iditarod Air Force, since 1980. 

George owns and operates Alaska Bush Expeditions, PO Box 1003, Willow, AK 99688. Phone: 001 (907) 495-1005.

Dorthia and George, it was an honor and pleasure for us, being able to meet and talk with you. We wish you many more wonderful and exciting trips together in your Sedan!
