Ex I-TROS, arrived in Australia with New Holland Airways and carrying migrants. Sold to Butler which disposed of it in 1956. Went to the US where it became N55L. In Italy it had been fitted with an air stair, which appears to have been the rectangular forward half of the standard double C-47 door hinged at the bottom. It was markedly larger than the rounded airstair doors Butler had in its other former C-47s.
