I have a photo of the crashed Budd RB1 Conestoga from Detroit. My dad is in the foreground of the photo and the plane with Flying Tiger Line in the background. My dad grew up in Detroit and I had guessed the date to be 1944 or 1945. From the information above I now know the date for the photo, thanks. If you would like a digital copy of the photo I can e-mail it.

This is from file CNO N87. The RB-1 Conestoga was a twin-engine, stainless steel cargo aircraft designed for the United States Navy during World War II by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although it did not see service in a combat theater, it pioneered design innovations in American cargo aircraft, later incorporated in modern military cargo airlifters.

A Budd RB-1 Conestoga crashed on San Rafael Mountain near Grants, NM on 7 November 1945. As with the Detroit accident a photo or other proof of the FAA registration number for this accident is needed for historic purposes. The FAA number would have commenced with NC45. I am aware of data by John M. Davis on the Flying Tiger Line website but his 2002 data was based on deduction and may be in error. Any help on the ID for the NM crash will also be appreciated.

A Budd RB-1 Conestoga's crashed on takeoff at the Detroit City Airport on 25 August 1945. A photo or other proof of the FAA registration number for this accident is needed for historic purposes. The FAA number would have commenced with NC45. I am aware of data by John M. Davis on the Flying Tiger Line website but his 2002 data was based on deduction may be in error. Any help on this ID will be appreciated.

My father was on a Conestoga leased by Fling Tiger Airlines which crashed in Chicago in the late 40's or early 50's. Anybody know about this incident? Thanks

During an Easter week-end motorhome trip back in the 1980's our families stayed overnight at the Douglas Muni AP. In the morning we went for a hike out to an old relic abandoned far out away from the runways. Neither my friend nor I, despite long careers in the airplane business had any idea what this airplane was. A few months later when in Wash DC I stopped in at the Air Museum to inquire about it. They ushered my back to the working area and introduced me to an old timer who listened to my story. He knew almost instantly (how many stainless steel two engine cargo airplanes were there after all?). He copied some old newspaper articles and gave them to me. I subsequently sent them to the Pima Air Museum. I don't recall ever hearing back from them but this may have been the link that saved the old relic which is now on display at the Pima Museum, presuming that it's the same S/N.

When I was a teenager, there was a Conestoga based at the Miami Int'l airport, 20th street terminal. The 20th street
terminal was for non-scheduled airlines and frieghters. The
Conestoga was built by the Budd railroad car company of spot
welded stainless steel sheet metal. I was told that the aircraft was being used to haul race horses. That was back in the day when a kid could ride all over the airport hangar areas on a bike. We've sure come a long way. ALMIII

My research has indicated that the RB-1 (C-93) Conestoga was built out of Shot-Welded stainless steel.

I have been looking for an aircraft that I jumped from in Georgia. It ws or looked as if it was aglider with engines on it. I though it was a c-82 but all pictures asyit was not. It did look like a glider with two engines. This was in the 50's.

I was a Deputy Sheriff in Cochise County, Arizona, in the mid 1970's. The Douglas International Airport was just north of Douglas, Arizona. A Connestoga fuselage lay abandoned in a field past the old hangers. Once in a while I would sit inside and eat my lunch. There were buzzing rattle snakes and whisteling .22 cal bullet holes in the stainless steel to keep me company. The interior had a plywood floorboard and LOTS of space. I often wondered what happened to the old bird, until many years later I saw it in the back area of the Pima Air Museum at Tucson.
I don't know if the wings and engines were somewhere on the airport or what Pima has or intends to do with it. I'll see what I can find out.

This was the first airplane Flying Tiger Line flew as a cargo company. They flew Strawberries and flowers to the east cost. Before my time though.. John Dewey who was head of maintenence was given one after they quit flying them. He donated it to the LA Airport fire dept for fire practice. They called him one day and wanted to know what it was made of as they seemed to have trouble burning it...

The last Budd C-93 Conestoga is at the Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ. Check their web site for a picture.
