This lovely old prop was delivered to United in November 1952 as N73117 as a Cv-340. It went on to fly with some classic names in American aviation including Frontier (during which it was converted to a CV-580), Aspen, Golden Gate and Sierra Pacific before storage at Tucson (TUS) in February 1988. During this time it was converted to a frighter and started with EAT/DHL in April 1989, going on in July 1995 to Swiftair as (EC-943) EC-GDY. It was bought by Skyhaul in June 2005 and ferried to George (GRJ), South Africa as ZS-SKG where it was scrapped for spares.
