During the Rhodesian and Border Wars, the South African Air Force kept a low profile with no national markings. The last number(s) of the serial were stenciled on the nose. This is 6859 a Dakota that was delivered to the RAF in March 1944. The following year 6859 went to the SAAF where she was active with 28, 44 and 60 Sqds for 49 years. In 1994 she was transferred to the SAAF Museum in flying condition. Here seen landing at Phalaborwa in the then Transvaal (now Limpopo), home to the 7th South African Infantry Battalion.

Freshly delivered to Channel Airways from BEA and wearing no titles. Delivery was in June 1961 and with Catalina G-APZA in the background, which was broken up in 1961, it would suggest the photo was taken around that time.

Built as 42-93432, this Dakota was delivered to the Royal Canadian Air Force as 969 May 23, 1944. It served long enough to get new serial number 12953 when the Air Force re-organized aircraft aerials in 1970. Stored in Saskatoon, SK in March 1975, it was with Ilford Riverton Airways by October 1975 as C-GWYX. Last with Central Mountain Air from February 1989, the aircraft experienced an engine fire on approach to Bronson Creek, BC May 21, 1989. The fire would not go out and a forced landing was made. Both pilots escaped unhurt, but the aircraft was destroyed by fire.
