Ex 44-78055, N9895Z. B-918 and XW-EAB. To XW-PBW in 1964. According to Joe Leeker, the aircraft was probably owned by the Laotian government from 1963 and painted like this, wearing Laotian insignia, but maintained and flown by Air America and associated operators until 1973, when it transferred to Royal Air Lao. The Commando crashed in 1974 on a cargo dropping flight. Kasi is also called Muang Kasi or Muong Kassy. Photo by: Joel Halpern / University of Wisconsin

'King Savang Vatthana's airplane', a gift from President Eisenhower in 1956. Ex N2714B. The king did not like to use the Aero Commander, as he could not sit in an elevated, regal position. On the right is a C-123K Provider, 617. The USAF's 54-617 was transferred to Air America in 1966. It was converted to a C-123K in 1969. During November 1973 it was used to train Laotian pilots out of Vientiane and subsequently transferred to the Royal Lao Air Force as 617. Photo by: Ernest Kuhn / University of Wisconsin
