This DC-6 arrived here on 4 December 2010, landing spectacularly on a small dirt strip nextdoor. Great clips of its arrival can be found on YouTube. It is ex ZS-XXX, reregd to ZS-MUL on 29 October 2010, shortly before this delivery flight. It's now in use as an eye-catcher, and photos can be taken from outside the fence, for those arriving after closing time, like us. It has the logo of its owner Drakensberg Truck Manufacturers on the fin. The aircraft's name dates back to the late 1950s, when this aircraft served with Canadian Pacific Airlines as CF-CZV, and was named "Empress of Suva".

Everts took over many of Northern Air Cargo's / Northern Air Fuel's DC-6s when that company phased them out. Some became operational in the Everts fleet but most, like this N7919C, became spares parts suppliers for the rest of Everts' sizeable DC-6 fleet.

This DC-6 flew for KLM from 1952 until 1962. Then was used to start up the new airline Adia Avioprompet. The sixes were ritired in the mid 1970s by Adria. Since then the YU-AFF has been preserved on a grassfield just outside the teminal of the airport at Brnik. This side shows the old Adria Avioprompet titles, while the lefthand side has the newer Adria Airways titles. A wonderful sight when you arrive in Slovenia, beautiful mountains and a pristine propliner!
