Changed to S/N 44-52983 - Shown on Assembly Line

Info Contributor - Al Blue
Ten aircraft [44-39299 thru 44-39308] were serialized, on the factory floor during production, as a carry-on from the last block of C-87s. There was a disconnect between the Line and the Contract Office and the serial numbers were put on in error. The records were never in error; the factory mistake was not carried over into any official serial listing that I know of. These were converted from bomber (in this case B-24J) components on the FW assembly line. Waist window openings have been retained and doors are UP, not down as might be expected.
Re-Serialized [44-52978 thru 44-52987]
