SNJ-4 Bu. No. 27254 was accepted in February 1943 and overhauled at Pensacola in 1953. It was stricken in January 1957 at Pensacola (O&R BuAer FA) with the military logs showing 3967.6 hours at retirement. The aircraft appeared on the US civil register in 1975, going through a number of owners until I acquired it in 1992. I began the restoration in earnest in 2004.
