The Fairchild F24 is a four-seat, single-engine monoplane light transport aircraft designed by the Fairchild Aviation Corporation in the 1930s. It was adopted by the United States Army Air Corps as UC-61. The Model 24 was itself a development of previous Fairchild models and was successful as a civilian and military aircraft. 

Our F24 was built in 1939 and was immediately sold to Charles "Buddy" Rogers, the movie star. He flew the aircraft for several years before he sold it to another private owner. The aircraft was eventually donated to us in 2008.
