15AC-403 – N1356H (21)

A 1949 Sedan in fantastic condition and featuring numerous interesting improvements, some of which are pictured below: Fuelling steps (03-04), external power socket (05), baggage door (10) and Cessna style cabin vents (11). Additionally, a seaplane door on the left and a 180 hp Lycoming engine, instead of the original Continental which only delivered 145 hp. Photo 02 was taken at Homer, Alaska, USA. Photos 01 and 03-15 were taken at Merrill Field, Alaska, in 2008. Posing for our camera that summer was former owner Chuck Lindstrom (photo 15) who had N1356H based at the Redmond airport (KRDM) in Oregon and whom we met coincidentally, during his short visit to Alaska.

In May 2013, Chuck sold the Sedan on to Harmon Pierce. Accompanied by Jim Lindner (owner of 15AC-416), Harmon ferried the plane from Oregon to its new home base in Fenton, Michigan, USA. Within a week after his arrival back home, Harmon had N1356H mounted on EDO 2000 floats and then put 35 hours on it in less than three weeks! Needless to say, he loves to fly it (photos 16-20)! N1356H was seen on Lake Winnebago, during EAA's Airventure Oshkosh 2014 (photo 21).
