Ex 44-78055, N9895Z. B-918 and XW-EAB. To XW-PBW in 1964. According to Joe Leeker, the aircraft was probably owned by the Laotian government from 1963 and painted like this, wearing Laotian insignia, but maintained and flown by Air America and associated operators until 1973, when it went to Royal Air Lao. Crashed in 1974 on a cargo dropping flight. Muong Kassy is also called Muang Kasi or Kasi. Photo by: Joel Halpern / University of Wisconsin-Madison
