Photo Comment

This DC-3 had been abandoned on a glacier in Iceland in 1950, when operating as USAF SC-47D 45-1013. It was salvaged by the founders of Loftleidir, operated as TF-RVP in 1951 and sold via England to Iberia in 1952 as EC-AHA. They were still using it in 1973 to link Malaga to Melilla. It was sold in 1974 as N62265 and became RP-C148 later that year. It was broken up in 1978.
