Photo Comment

This aicraft was one of six CV-240s puchased by Central Air Transport to operate services within Nationalist China. After the Communist takeover this plane had the honour of operating the first ever CAAC service, eventually being operated by that company as '401'. Eventually she ended up at Datangshan and regained her old colour scheme but is, unfortunately, displayed without engines.
