Photo Comment

Ordered as a DC-3-455 for Eastern but delivered to the USAAF as C-49K 43-2013 in January 1943. Disposed in 1945. Converted to DC-3A and served with Delta as NC15748, later N15748. After a crash in private ownership in 1979 this aircraft was eventually donated to the Museum of Flight in poor condition in Aug 1987. Cosmetically restored and placed on display as "NC91008" (c/n 25422) of Alaska Airlines, but removed from display in 1997 and dumped. Trucked to Aerometal at Aurora, OR in June 2016. Note: this airframe is often incorrectly associated with NC17885, but that was c/n 9064.
