Re: Beech UC-43 - crash 19 Dec 1946 - serial?

Alex,

Official accident report specifically mentions UC-43 and just 8871 as serial.
No idea were 43-8871 (Baltimore) came from as on accident-report.com.

To my knowledge only other Staggerwing flying for US Embassy London had been YC-43 39-139, I believe preserved till this day.

Regards,

Leendert

Hello,
Had not looked at "39"
Seems its in Holland, so perhaps to look for signs of old burn/fire marks ?
However 39-140 may be worth a search ?

39-140: shipped from France to the US July 1941 (US still neutral then) and scrapped there several years later.
