No. And that's not the plane. The fusalage has the actual registration number since NR 16020 would not be reissued. But it is a Lockheed Electra made up very like.

Whenever I do a sheet metal repair, I always look forward to painting it.

Helps hide the 'imperfections'. :)

That polished aluminum would be a pain to work on.

No. And that's not the plane. The fusalage has the actual registration number since NR 16020 would not be reissued. But it is a Lockheed Electra made up very like. Not the actual plane. This one has been restored to be as close to the configuration flown by Amelia Earhart as they could get. The even got the FAA to reissue her registration number. Seattle's Museum of Flight just acquired her for the collection. She's to be put on display. We came down to see here delivered. The tail number is the only one on the aircraft. Here she is on the taxiway:
