Delivered to USAAF as 42-68745 in May 1943. To United Airlines as NC49543 in January 1945. Sold in 1955. Preserved engineless by Sonny Hamilton on his private property near the town centre of Petal, Mississippi from 1991. He inherited the aircraft from his father's M.W. Hamilton Machine Museum at the same location. Another DC-3 and a B-25 from his father's museum were transferred to other museums in the 1990s.
