Noorduyn UC-64A Norseman Military Aircraft

The Canadian Robert B.C. Noorduyn designed the Norseman as a rugged single engine bush plane, he then founded Noorduyn Aircraft Ltd to produce the aircraft. A total of 904 aircraft were produced between 1935 and 1959, it proved to be a really reliable workhorse within a wide range of environments, and soon caught the attention of the United States Army Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force during WW2 subsequently both purchased the Norseman in relatively large numbers for utility transport use.
