Buyer’s Market

Mk V Norseman, N45TG has been in open storage at the Baudette airport, Minnesota for many years and the owner would like to sell the airplane and all associated parts as a total package in the near future. The airport operator is asking for the airplane to be moved from the property and this will necessitate dismantling and a relocation soon before the coldest parts of winter arrive.

If you are looking for a project or need Norseman spares, contact Todd Griffen at 218 556-2589.

This started me thinking about other Norseman presently for sale and there are quite a few.

In Alaska, N78691 (Mk VI, Noorduyn serial 637) is advertised at 169,500 USD. Operated commercially on wheels it is now parked awaiting a new owner as the current owner switched to turbine powered equipment. See; N78691

On Platinum Fighter Sales (link here) is an add for Noorduyn serial 224 with the interesting registration of N164UC. This is a play on the Norseman’s USAAF designation of UC-64. Asking price is $245,000 USD.

Not actively listed although still on the market is Norseman floatplane CF-JEC located near La Motte, Quebec. Last advertised at $197,500 CAD, this Mk VI with Noorduyn serial 469 is featured on a beer label by Bush Pilot Brewing! If you are interested please call owner Olivier Lemieux at 819 727-4080 or email;

Other Norseman that are presently inactive and potential buys are CF-FOX and CF-LZO. For information, email;
