History
NC21361 was completed on October 20, 1938 as production number C-1668 (KM 141) with a Continental A-50-3 engine and FLOT. 36 prop. The aircraft weighed 696lbs empty. The paint was black with red trim and a gold border. Similar to a Fairchild design. It was equipped with brakes, tailwheel, assist chord, cabin heater, carpet, and customer-supplied compass. It was sold to Ernest C.J. Bick on October 21, 1938. The aircraft went on to be owned by seven other individuals before Larry Bishop donated the aircraft to our organization in 2015.

In 2012, the aircraft underwent a complete restoration at Peach State Aerodrome in the Barnstormer's Workshop.
