Norseman R-AF was buildt at Noorduyn Aviation in Canada in 1944, and was transferred to the Norwegian Air Force in March 1945 where it was given its military register, R-AF. In 1959,
the aircraft was sold to A/S Solbergfly (Thor Solberg) and was given its civilian register, LN-TSN. It was sold to Sweden in 1963 where it was given the register SE-CGM. The Norseman have been given back its R-AF register in a Norwegian Air Force color scheme. It is flown with both wheels and floats.
The Noorduyn Norseman is a Canadian single-engine bush plane designed to operate from unimproved surfaces. Distinctive stubby landing gear protrusions from the lower fuselage make it easily recognizable.
It was a UC-64A Norseman (s/n 44-70285) flown by F/O John R. S. Morgan in which Major Glenn Miller was flying as a passenger when he disappeared over the English Channel on December 15, 1944, possibly due to aircraft carburetor icing or from jettisoned bombs from RAF Lancasters after an aborted raid.
