See a 1940 Naval Aircraft Factory N3N-3 at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1940

Donation: John Cheney

Engine: Wright J-6-7

The last operational biplane in the U.S. armed forces, the N3N was also the last mass-produced aircraft from the Naval Aircraft Factory. As a yellow-painted primary trainer it was nicknamed the “Yellow Peril” by trainees. Engine starting was by use of a hand crank that spun up a flywheel. When the flywheel was up to the proper speed a handle was pulled to engage the flywheel with the engine. The N3N-3 was flown with either wheels or floats. Four were transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard in 1941 and after WWII the Naval Academy kept several N3N’s on floats. The last one was struck from the inventory in 1960.
