Based on the Howard Aircraft Corporation's pre-war DGA ("Damn Good Airplane") the GH series were produced in quantity for Navy use from 1941 onwards. Powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-985 engine the aircraft served in a number of wartime transport and training modes. The Museum of Flight's DGA-15P has seen much hard use and is undergoing extensive restoration.
