In 1996, while with Air North, it suffered a terminal accident after take-off from Bronson Creek. The No.2 engine caught fire then separated from the wing. Despite full power on the remaining three engines and full deflection of rudder and aileron controls in an attempt to prevent yawing or rolling, the aircraft came down in a river bed. Must have been a terrifying experience for the crew.

This DC-4 was seized at Basel in 1962/1963, and illegally flown to Brussels on 14 June 1963 with fake registration N2894C, where it was seized again. It remained stored there until bought by Rudy Hannecaert in July 1967 and trucked to Geraardsbergen (Grammont), Belgium, with the intention of using it as a bar. The bar never opened and in May 1971 the aircraft was taken over by Armand Coessens, dismantled again and trucked from Geraardsbergen to the nearby airfield at Overboelare, for use as a clubhouse and bar for the local flying club. By 2001 it was no longer in use as such, but it remained there "preserved" in the appaling condition seen here, still as N2894C and with faded Trans Atlantic Airlines titles still visible.

Jaime Duque was a Avianca pilot who set up this amusement park just north of Bogota. It contains several aircraft, including this DC-4. It is painted as Avianca HK-136, but that may not be its true identity (HK-136 crashlanded in a field in 1981). Access to the airplane for fact checking is impossible as the airplane is a huge windvane, mounted on a pole.
