This aircraft was brought to Alaska by Jack Carr, along with two additional planes of the same model. NC43606 was flown out of the factory to Seattle, then disassembled and loaded on to a Pacific Northern Airways DC-3. Once in Alaska, NC43606 was used immediately for training pilots and charter world out of Merrill Field in Anchorage. While this aircraft had many owners, it has spent its entire career within Alaska. NC43606 was sold to the Alaska Aviation Museum in 2007 by Tyler Willis. Staff and volunteers restored this aircraft to original factory colors with the original Jack Carr logo.
