Does this still exist or did it get scrapped? Was this the one on the pole in Oklahoma City, the Model L3805 once registered as NX1946?

Thanks!

I believed it was saved when removed from the fairground.

I'd like to know more too.

I'd love a book...or lengthy article...on the history of Aero Commander.

Thanks good to know there is at least one other fan lol.

This particular ac seems like a great candidate for preservation at Pima it if still exists. Hopefully it was saved.

It is/was on the ground at Metro Tech's campus on the northwest end of Will Rogers World Airport, along with a C-47.
