North American Navion (N7733C)
This military L-17B 48-974 Navion flew for the 25th Infantry Division in Korea for the entire war. One of the few survivors of its type. It has been restored in markings of California NG 49th Infantry Division “The Argonauts”
Constructed as a 1948? L-17B by Ryan.
Believe i flew this one or one like it when it and i were based at Travis AFB. It was owned by the Aero Club while I earned more money as a part time CFII then I did as a private first class MP guarding Nike missiles at Travis. Back in the day - 1966.
Nice photo ron, and thanks for your service John S.
Great air-to-air work Ron
Congratulations, great picture!
North American thought that all the returning pilots from World War II would want their own airplane, so they brought out the Navion. As it turned out, only a very small percentage of the pilots wanted their own aircraft in civilian life For many pilots, flying was just their job in the effort to win the war. Once the war was over, so were there flying days.
Well said Jeff. I'm sure the cost of owning and maintaining their own a/c didn't exactly help either!
Nice looking plane! Would like to fly one.
