A replica of Martin and Osa Johnson's 1929 S-38 Amphibious Sikorsky Aircraft
The company Unlimited Adventure was formed by Buzz Kaplan and Tom Schrade, with the goal to collect exotic airplanes and recreate historical aviation expeditions around the
world. Born Again Restoration of Owatonna, Minnesota began restoration of Osa's Ark in 2000 and after more than 40,000 man hours the project was completed. This plane is a
replica of Martin and Osa Johnson's zebra striped flying yacht which made historic flights over Africa in the 1930's.
On August 21, 2010 Osa's Ark began the first segment of it's World Tour.
Departing Owatonna, Minnesota the Flying Yacht embarked on a Trans Atlantic journey crossing the north Atlantic with views of many
spectacular sites before coming to rest and being displayed at the Josepf Koch Museum in Grossenhain, Germany, October, 2010.
The 2011 Flying Season began in Grossenhain and after experiencing an engine failure in Thun, Switzerland delaying the African departure, the team regrouped and made
arrangements to visit several European AirShows before putting Osa's Ark in Frank Degen's hanger in Welzow, Germany.
The 2012 season has come to an end after criss-crossing Europe attending 10 airshows. The S-38 is now on display in the Aviodrome in Lelystad, Netherlands
