Ginter. Fifty-three S-43/JRS-1 "Baby Clippers" were produced in total - 31 civil, 15 Navy, 2 Marines, and 5 Army Air Corps. Ten of the Navy's JRS-1s were at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, and all survived the attack - and one, the BuNo 1063, is undergoing restoration at the Smithsonian today. Two civil S-43s have also survived, one originally owned by Howard Hughes and one at the Pima Air and Space Museum. This fully illustrated book covers all the aircraft's users including civilian and postwar users. 100 pages, 3 color and 232 B&W photos, 8½"x 11", softcover.
