On July 27, 1952 this aircraft was dispatched from Wheelus AFB in an attempt to rescue 32 survivors of a Tropic Airways DC-3, ZS-DFB, which had ditched in the Mediterranean Sea due to engine failure. Despite heavy seas it made a successful water landing and took all 32 survivors aboard from their life rafts and waited for surface vessels to arrive. the SA-16 was damaged by metal lifeboats transferring survivors to the ship to the extent that it couldn't fly back to base. it was further damaged being towed back and is seen here being pulled from the water after arriving. Scrapped April 1953.

Originally delivered to the USAF as 49-074 in 1950. Transferred to the Brazilian Air Force in 1958 as 6530. Withdrawn in 1980 and sold in 1984, Registered as PP-ZAS in 1991. Became N97HU in 1994, and ferried to Canada for restoration in March 1996. First post-restoration flight in early 1997. Sold in Mexico in 2004 as XB-JHH. On 10 August of that year forced down by the Mexican authorities on a suspected drug-running flight. Beached and abandoned on the Mexican coast at Playa de la Ventanilla, near Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. Subsequent to the removal of its engines, the airframe was left derelict and over the years sank slowly into the sand.
