c/n 127



Paint shop note: Two coats of Aircraft Grey Cellulose (Not quite as smooth as it should have been). Insignia Blue fuselage stripe and fin band with ½ inch blue and ½ inch grey trim. Regn N1489V put on June 29th.

N1489V The Babb Co., Ltd. Regd 04-Sep-1951.

Note. There is no record of this aircraft after the initial registration. However it was considered that this could have been one of six aircraft delivered to Cuba under the Military Assistance Programme (MAP) possibly becoming  FAEC-15. However, it was believed Babb were due to deliver three Beavers to Cuba in 1951 possibly c/n 127, and certainly c/n 139 and 164.

Subsequent information from Dan Hagerdorn and John Davis indicate that, from USAF (intelligence) records, only c/n 139 & c/n 164 were involved in the Babb transaction from the 1951 batch.
