The Anderson Greenwood AG-14 was a two-seat utility aircraft developed in the United States shortly after World War II. The prototype first flew in October 1947, but plans to mass-produce the aircraft were interrupted by the Korean War.
Anderson Greenwood's sole aircraft design was actually a collaborative effort of three engineers: Ben Anderson, Marvin Greenwood & Lomis Slaughter Jr. The name of the last member of the design team was not included in the product name as it was thought it would not boost sales.
In 1962 Anderson Greenwood & Co. Iicensed three individuals to produce the AG-14, C. G. Taylor (of Taylorcraft fame), LeRoy W. "Roy" Hubert and Edward Phinney. Together they owned N3902K, and Hubert had it based at Flabob airport near Riverside, Calif. That's why I placed it there and show it here.
One AG-14 aircraft was acquired by Cessna Aircraft Company in 1969 and taken to Wichita, Kansas for evaluation. Cessna designed and constructed a single prototype aircraft of similar configuration, the Cessna XMC.

Meanwhile I "resized" Kobbe Ferwick's Flabob scenery. FlabobExpress isn't there at suitable time, but it's a nice repaint anyway.
BTW, here some further informations about this "Little Airport That Time Forgot" as titled once FLYING Magazine:
Flabob airport is home to many famous aviators and the birthplace of famous aircraft such as the Pitts biplane and DeHavilland Comet. Flabob, pronounced flay-bob began as a small air strip named, “Riverside Airport”. Riverside Airport was founded in 1925 by Roman Warren, also known as the “Cowboy Aviator”.
When the airport was up for sale, Flavio Madariaga and his partner Bob Bogen purchased the strip in 1943. The names of these two men were combined to create the airport’s name today, “Flabob”.
