Traces of this aircraft's former US Navy history (BuNo 131604 / RZ) can still be seen on its fin. The rudder was taken from a Trans Continental DC-6. The obtrusive nose cone on the left belongs to a former US Navy Convair C-131.
A small part of Everts' large and interesting storage yard. On the left are ex Conifair DC-6 N3047V with DC-6 N9148F hiding behind, then DC-6 N810CS all the way in the back, then ex Macavia DC-6 N666SQ and finally DC-6 N951CE on the right.
On 17 January 2007 this DC-4 suffered a fire in the #2 engine which could not be contained and spread to the wing. The crew made a wheels-up landing in the tundra 7 km west of Nenana, AK. The wreck was salvaged in Feb/Mar-2007 and trucked to Nenana Airport for storage. It was still there 10 years later.
A long-distance shot, apologies for the very poor quality. This DC-6 was acquired by Everts Air Fuel for spares in 1992 (ex Sécurité Civile F-ZBAD), and stored in their Fairbanks yard. What was left of the aircraft was transferred to the airport fire services circa 2005.
This Brasilia briefly served with North-South Airways from 2001 until withdrawn from use in Jun 2003. It is seen here stored in the Everts yard, still in full North-South Airways colours. Originally an EMB-120RT, it was converted to full-freighter version EMB-120FC in Jan 2001. Everts purchased it in May 2005 as a spares donor for their own Brasilias.
This venerable Flying Boxcar was registered to Everts Air Fuel in Feb 1995, but almost certainly never operated for the company. Note the faded "U.S. Air Force" titles still visible on the forward fuselage (ex 53-7836). It is unclear when the nice nose art was applied.
