| ||I was a fractional owner of this aircraft in Idaho in 1968. We rebuilt it from scratch almost. I visited the Call brothers in Afton and received advertising materials from the aircraft company. One had a woman in a long black dress and huge hat standing on the wing. The A-3 was the personal plane of the Call brothers and they told me they used to take it into the mountains at 17,000 feet, land on the side of a mountain (with the skis), take snow depth readings for the Forest Service, then slide off the mountain to take off. This plane was built in 1947 and had the 6 cylinder 125 hp Continental.|

| ||33355 was the airplane flown by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 when he spotted a formation of fast flying winged shaped craft passing near Mt Ranier - one of the first popular "flying saucer" or UFO sightings. How very neat to have an airplane with some historical significance.|
Would be nice to know if the color scheme from original has been retained.
