This C-47 was built in 1944 and flew with the USAF as 44-76540 and participated in the 1947-49 Berlin Airlift. Due of the importance of this event for the City of Berlin it was acquired for sightseeing flights in 2000. Tragically the frame was written-off at SXF less than a week after this photo was taken after the left engine failed on take-off and the aircraft was unable to gain height. Fortunately the pilots could crash land in a field and all aboard survived.
This 734 went originally to Air Berlin as D-ABAH in February 1995, After a brief time with Jet2(Futura) it went to Bremenfly ffrom January 2009 until October 2010 and is pictured here touching down on rw25. From December 2010 it went to Jordan Aviation as JY-JAQ but was damaged (written-off?) on lease to Safi Airways at Kabul (KBL) in December 2016 when the right-hand main landing gear and flaps were torn off during a hard landing.
