Marine Airways Bellanca CH-300
Pacemaker NC196N (c/n 181)
The photograph above (from Lars
Opland) is a copy of an image at the Alaska Aviation
Museum. It shows the Bellanca in circa 1939 livery. The
photograph below, of
the same aircraft, was taken by
Lars' grandfather, Alfred Opland, at an earlier time. Marine
named it "Shakey Jake"
(probably for obvious reasons!). This old Pacemaker soldiered on
with Alaska Coastal Airlines
until 1968 when it was sold to the Canadian Air Museum in
Ottawa where it is currently
displayed as CF-ATN.
