In 2003, following 11 years of storage as a spares donor in the Everts yard at Fairbanks airport, this DC-6 was sold to a private person, reportedly for use as a home. On 19 July 2003 it was trucked from the airport to its new location on the Old Steese Highway in northern Fairbanks. It was still there by late 2017, in much the same condition as seen in this photo - complete minus engines, and with the outer wings separate.
On outdoor display at the museum with "Air North" titles, the Fairbanks-based airline for which this aircraft operated in the mid and late 1970s. Carries '456' on the fin, the significance of which is unclear. The revised wingtips and engine cowlings and the fully-enclosing landing gear doors show that this is a Hamilton Little Liner conversion, and not a regular Beech 18.
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.
