The Sikorsky S-38 was an American twin-engined 8-seat amphibious aircraft. The S-38 first flew on May 1928. The United States Navy ordered two aircraft (designated XPS-2) and Pan American Airways were an early customer. Some 100 aircraft were built.
This aircraft was visiting Texel airport in The Netherlands. The N-28V is in private ownership and has a very luxuerious cabin. The nickname is "OSAS Ark". Summer 2012 it has been sold to the Fantasy of Flight museum in Florida.
