Air New Zealand leased N8035U for three months from November 1967 to cover the busy Christmas period. Internet claims the aircraft was leased from November 1964 to January 1968 are incorrect but can be found repeated on all online aircraft production lists. Printed production lists from 40 years ago confirm my recollections.

The DC-4E was designed to have twice the capacity of the DC-3 with a range of 2200 miles. Provision was made for pressurisation, but was not fitted. The prototype first flew on 7 June 1938. After testing, it was handed over to United in 1939 for airline trials, but was deemed to be too large and complex for airline demand of the day. The small upper windows were to illuminate sleeping accomodation. Sold to Japan in late 1939. Obtained from UAL 60 years ago.

The Model 40 was Boeing's first passenger aircraft. Two pax sat in the forward cabin and up to 2500 lbs of U.S. Mail was carried. C.A.M.18 was from San Francisco to Chicago - as marked on the "Arrow" insignia. This aircraft was built as a 40A with a 420 hp P&W Wasp, but was converted to a 40B by replacing the engine with a 525 hp P&W Hornet. This gave the 40B a cruise of 110 mph over 550 miles. Obtained from UAL 60 years ago.
