The dull grey skies over Fairbanks this morning were due to the smoke of the Parks Highway Fire, which was raging 65 km (40 miles) away to the west. But that certainly didn't make this very rare Carvair sound any less impressive...

On 17 January 2007 this DC-4 suffered a fire in the #2 engine which could not be contained and spread to the wing. The crew made a wheels-up landing in the tundra 7 km west of Nenana, AK. The wreck was salvaged in Feb/Mar-2007 and trucked to Nenana Airport for storage. It was still there 10 years later.

TAA bought VH-TAA as a new production DC-4. Delivered in 1946. Switched to cargo operations in 1960 (it was built with C-54-style double doors). Crashed on approach to Brisbane airport on May 24, 1961. Captain had a cardiac arrest and collapsed over the throttles as he tried to vacate his seat. The throttles closed and the copilot could not get to them. -TAA descended into a mangrove swamp and the cockpit was destroyed when it collided with a tree. Neither pilot survived.
