Delivered in 1945 to a 1944 USAAF order as 44-9126, this C-54 (DC-4) was put into storage at Davis Monthan in 1971. Sold in 1975 & reg N9013V, passing through numerous owners. Arrived Australia in June 1995 & re-reg VH-PAF to Pacific Air Freighters on 31 January 1996. Derelict at Archerfield for many years, donated to HARS in June 2008 & re-reg VH-EAY(4) on 23 June 2008. Under long-term rebuild, it has been partially re-painted in Airlines of NSW colours on the starboard side and Qantas colours on the port side.
