Famed relic hunter and archeologist Indiana Jones is hired by the US government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do.
Also from this series:
NC13075. A biplane with water pontoons, used by Jones to escape from the pursuing Hovitos tribesmen in South America. False registration OB-CPO (a reference to the Star Wars characters Obi-Wan and C-3PO).
Jones flies from the States to Nepal in the Short Solent.
Registration G-AKNP, c/n S.1295 built in 1946. Short Solent 3 of the Oakland Aviation Museum in Oakland, California with fictitious PAN AMERICAN markings (she was used by BOAC). The flight through Pacific is close to the route taken by Pan Am's Boeing 314 from San Francisco to Hong Kong but the turning point is Manila, Philippines.
Used by Jones and Marion Ravenwood to fly from Nepal to Egypt.
The Nazis attempt to transport the Ark from Tanis to Germany via this airplane. Following an attempt by Jones to board it, it is destroyed in an explosion. Read the discussion tab.
