Year: 1943 Serial Number: 1312, U.S. Navy BuNo 32958
Engine(s): Lycoming GO-480-B1D, 6-Cylinder, 295-HP, McKinnon Conversion Owner: Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, Anchorage, AK

Date: July, 2004 Present Registration: Same Present Owner (FAA info): Same
Notes: 9/19/05 - The FAA file on this aircraft starts in March 1967, because the aircraft came back from Canada at that time. Sometimes the FAA will pick up the previous records, and sometimes not.

N13122 was built as a J4F-2 for the U.S. Navy and given their BuNo 32958. Prior to the 1967 reentry into the U.S., it had been flown under U.S. registrations N1069M, N69T, N89T and Canadian CF-KKF.

This aircraft has been in Alaska since 1969, and in the James S. Magoffin family of Fairbanks from then until 2001 when it went to the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, most likely by donation.
