University of Florida Athletic Department. Delivered to United as a DST on July 9, 1937 as NC18103. Used by USAAF and returned to United as DC-3A in 1944. Became N287SE with South East, and then Central Airlines before being sold in 1967. The "Fighting Gators" livery uses some patterns of the old North Central colors.
