Delivered new to the Royal Canadian Air Force as 22118, this airplane never had a USAF serial number. The display tail number is the serial number it would/should have had (51-2881) if it had been a USAF asset, based on an earlier block of Fairchild-built C-119s and the contractor number. After retirement from military service Hawkins and Powers operated the airplane with the civilian registration N3559. The AMC museum has done a fine job of restoration to USAF configuration.
