Qantas' two DC-4 became anachronisms as the airline pushed towards becoming an all 747 operator in the late 1970s. Only DC-4s met the overwater safety requirements and still be able use the airport. The solution came with a dispensation for East-West to operate long-range Fokker F27 500s on the route. The airstrip has since been lengthened and strengthened for 737/A320 class airliners.

Delivered to the USAAF as 41-37261 in 1943. To N90407 in 1946 and served with a number of operators then to HK-1028 in 1964 and served with a number of operators.

Was built in May 1944 for the USAAF as 42-72202, but delivered to the US Navy as BuNo 39163. Later to NC49527, ZS-BWN, F-BJHG & TU-TBJ. Seen here on the active runway after a nosegear failure during landing. Unfortunately the aircraft was written off during this accident due to serious airframe damage sustained when the aircraft was pushed off the runway.

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.
