Does anyone have the msn? I know from the show that they were in South America looking @ an ex-REEVE ALEUTIAN airframe, and the clever guys @ REEVES spliced two damaged airframes together several years ago and ya NEVER know. I might be able to look it up and track its life from Burpbank to the accident

The life of CF-BAQ msn 1039 F/F 2/13/59 D/D 2/27/59 to ANSETT of AUSTRALIA as VH-RMA TPI INT. as N 356Q AIRBRIDGE INT as N 356Q WORLD AIRLINES as N 356WS HUNTING CARGO as N 356CE RENOWN AIR as N 356Q AMERER AIR (leased to TNT CARGO) as OE-ILB BUFFALO as CF-BAQ as of 7/03/07
Saw pictures of the post incident the damage actually isn't that bad, a couple props (hollow AEROPRODUCTS speed props) some removable leading edge pieces, an engine mount or two (#3 took some damage too) and odds and ends tinwork, it's actually a very tough old chicken and given BUFFALOS reputation, it may take a while, but it'll fly again.
Alex Reynoso: I am looking for a Naval Museum that might display some of my father's WWII Navy items. I have a scaled model of a PBM-3 that he was a crew member of I believe crew #3. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org

Jim Broshot: Since nobody has responded in the last month and a half. The only Naval Museums I have ever been to are in Oregon: Tillamook Air Museum (housed in an old blimp hanger, used to be a Naval Air Museum but seems to have gotten away from that specialty. http:/

Jim Broshot: And its not a Naval Museum but an Aviation Museum and I have seen models displayed in its exhibits, the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in Mcminnville www.evergreenmuseum.org/
