Photographer's Remark

This Stratofreighter, owned by Stratolift Inc, shows misleading identification marks. It is ex USAF 52-0883 (with some difficulty '0883' can be seen below the faded U.S. Air Force titles on the nose), but the tail clearly shows '0237'. This is because the original tail fin was damaged, and it was replaced with that of 53-0237 (cn 17019). The missing engine cowlings of engine #3 suggest that this aircraft was already withdrawn from use at the time. It was slowly reduced to scrap here during 1994-1996.
