The Museum has the unskinned front fuselage section of an unidentified GAF-built Nomad. The fuselage section is of conventional semi-monocoque construction with frames and stringers of aluminium alloy 2024 painted in a primer-coat. The fuselage section was obtained by the Museum from GAF in 1982 as Nomad production wound down. It was described as a "scrap" section by GAF and is apparently an un-used production spare. The Museum acquired the fuselage as an example of modern metal aircraft structure.
