Notes: 10/15/05 - Sitting high and dry and unlikely to fly again, N1047B is nevertheless a treasured museum display piece. It represents a piece of U.S. and Canadian bush aviation history that is unrecognized by many.

This aircraft started life as Beechcraft UC-45F, c/n 7728 and AAF s/n 44-47342. It was later registered in Canada as CF-PSU and used by Air Dale, but has been in Alaska for over 20-years as N1047B. The 1986 FAA registry shows it registered to David Wunsch of Juneau and by 1989 it was in the name of the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum. Parmerter says it was N8011H when Joe G. Marrs put it on Edo 56-7850 floats, probably in the late 1950's or early '60's

This is the paint scheme that was used by Ward Air when they operated N1047B out of Juneau, AK. See Parmerter, P369 for a photo taken in 1980. You will note there that it has counterweighted, non-feathering 2D30 props

This aircraft has a two-piece windshield, Super '18 tips and what appears to be a Hamilton cargo door.

The beaching gear here is commonly used on Beech 18's.
