I consider myself to be a decent aircraft identifier, and when I saw this plane when exploring an aircraft graveyard, I was not able to identify it. I took a pic and showed it to several aviation Facebook groups, and nobody was able to identify it. Maybe we’re just being dumb and it’s something simple, but can somebody help? Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ The N-number is still there on the tail you could use that in one of the registration databases. $\endgroup$ Mar 20, 2018 at 13:58

    $\begingroup$ @ratchetfreak - partially there. Can you make it out? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Jamiec Not in this picture but the original non-scaled image may have it more readable. $\endgroup$ Mar 20, 2018 at 14:23
  • $\begingroup$ Cpt Reynolds It was found in Discount Aircraft Salvage, an Aircraft Graveyard is Deer Park, WA. $\endgroup$

It's an Aermacchi AL-60-B1 (original design by Al Mooney, Lockheed L-402 Bushmaster aka Lockheed 60)

    $\begingroup$ Looks like a match, but how did you figure this out? Nice work. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @dvnrrs For people who are knowledgeable on identifying aircraft no "figuring out" is required. Shape of the wings (even just the roots), the windows/cabin, the empenage, the tail (or what is left of it) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you! I figured out the registration by looking at it very closely from a different angle. N3380G; A Lockheed-Aermacchi Model 402-2, a MUCH rarer prototype variant of the Lockheed 60. $\endgroup$

If that is N3380G, I saw it at EAA Airventure Oshkosh in 2001. It was a Mexican built model, not Italian. I have a pic of the dataplate showing Lockheed-Azcarate S.A., AeroGuayin, Model LASA-60, S/N 1010.
