Naval Aircraft Factory N3N

Designed by the U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics, the prototype XN3N-1 first flew in August 1935.  Used as a trainer, almost all N3Ns were surplused at the end of World War II except for a few floatplanes which remained in service at the U.S. Naval Academy until 1961.

The N3N acquired the nickname "Yellow Peril" for its all yellow paint scheme when in U.S. Navy training service.

Type: Trainer
Engines: one 235 hp (175 kW) Wright R-760-2 Whirlwind 7 piston engine
