N22932 was a latecomer on the Catalina route. N22932 came to Catalina Airlines, Inc. in the late 1970's. It crashed when a control cable separated from the yoke during a take-off from Avalon on September 18th, 1979. The aircraft was later salvaged and today is flying with Pen Air of Alaska. It is one of the few Gooses still in regular airline service. Pen Air also flies two other Gooses, N741 (B-97) and N7811 (B-122). These Gooses are flown year round out of Dutch Harbor. Pen Air has acquired copies of the original drawing specifications and manufacture their own parts for the Gooses in order to keep them flying.
