BCPA was a joint UK, Australian and New Zealand airline formed to operate trans-Pacific services to North America. The partnership ended in 1953 and Qantas took over the routes to the US and Canada flying Super Constellations. The remaining BCPA DC-6s (one had crashed) were passed to TEAL, a joint Australian-New Zealand airline for trans-Tasman services. Nose section still survived as a full-size simulator in Finland by 2022. Photo from: Whites Aviation Collection/Alexander Turnbull Library

The oldest existing DC-6 (first flown in 1946) still looks quite proud in front of the Sanicare Medical complex in Bad Laer, the aircraft finished its active life in spring 1969, by the time operating for Germanair, it was transferrred into the countryside to be used as a cafe near Preussisch-Oldendorf, where some lovely cakes were served, and since 2003 it became kind of landmark of the little German town.

Delivered new in 1948 as PH-TPB then re-registered PH-DPB in 1954. Other sources claim it became PJ-DPB in 1964 for use by Linn Aeronautica in Panama, but obviously this happened much earlier or else the aircraft had been operated for ALM around this time. On 10 July 1975 at Bogotá-Eldorado Airport (SKBO), while registered HK-756, it was struck on the ground by a departing Electra and destroyed by fire.
