A DC-3 with a nose ring. Ordered by Eastern Air Lines as a DC-3-201G but delivered to USAAF as C-49D 41-7719 Oct 1941, before Pearl Harbor. To Sabena on 1 February 1946 and seen here reopening the Brussels - Haren to Zürich service days later. Soon to Sabena Congo. To Air Congo as 9O-CBC in 1961, to 9Q-CBC in 1962. To Congo (Zaire) Air Force in May 1970. Still in service by 1973, but ultimate fate obscure. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zúrich
Taken from outside the airport fence. Part of the Fundacion de Parc Aeronautic de Catalunya, this is one of their future restoration projects. Spantax titels still can be seen, as well as the registration under the wing.
Seen at the Essendon "graveyard" with her previous MacRobertson Miller Airlines titles still showing on the roof and the name R.M.A Turner still vaguely visible on nose. Other registrations included VH-MJR and PK-OSA.
Still in the c/s it wore when with Millardair as CF-WCN (1967-1980). At the time of this photo it is believed (but not confirmed) that it was operated by a company called Air Cargo America. What happened to it as regards ownership later is unwritten. However, the aircraft was impounded for drug running at Saint Andreas Island, Columbia, circa 1994. It remained there until it was scrapped sometime after 2001.
