Sikorsky S-43

These flying boats first flew in 1935 and were used primarily by PanAm for service to Cuba and Latin America.  A total of fifty three were built. Twenty two of these were acquired by the US military, designated the JRS-1 and used throughout the war as transports. Howard Hughes owned one as a personal plane- now owned by Kermit Weeks.
