The registration is a matter of contention. First registered XA-TDR in Oct 1994 (ex Mexican Air Force ETP-10024), it was "assigned" N48AW in 1998. It is however unclear if it was 'officially' registered as such. For sure the US registration was never painted on and it remained in storage displaying its Mexican registration. Sadly broken up in Nov 2007.

Carries spurious 'DC-6C' marking on the fin. Written off on 22 February 1960 when it landed 1200 feet short at Elmdorf AFB (PAED) during a GCA approach. (The captain used the wrong rpm, manifold pressure and flap settings.)
