For me it's the Northrop N-3PB floatplane. A super cool plane.
The Northrop N-3PB of No. 330 (Norwegian) Squadron, RAF. The Squadron was formed at Reykjavik, Iceland on 25 April 1941 from Norwegian personnel who had managed to escape from Norway and then undergone training in Canada. They initially flew with RAF Sunderland crews but in May aircraft ordered by the Norwegian government prior to the German invasion arrived in the form of Northrop N-3PB seaplanes. The Squadron was attached to Coastal Command and operated from bases in Iceland and Scotland, tasked mainly with anti-submarine patrols.
The Northrop N-3PB Nomad was a single-engined American floatplane of the 1940s. Northrop developed the N-3PB as an export model based on the earlier Northrop A-17 design. A total of 24 were purchased by Norway, but were not delivered until after the Fall of Norway during the Second World War. Exiled Norwegian forces used them from 1941, operating from Iceland, for convoy escort, anti-submarine patrols, and training purposes from "Little Norway" in Canada. Within two years of delivery, the design was effectively obsolete in its combat role, and the remaining N-3PBs were replaced by larger aircraft in 1943.
The only surviving and restored example is at the Norwegian Armed Forces Aircraft Collection in Norway:
The wreck was found submerged in a frozen lake in Iceland. Between 1980 and 1981 it was beautifully restored to a pristine condition in Hawthorne, California, by veteran employees of Northrop. Many of them had worked on the N-3PB when all 24 were built for Norway in 1940-41.
