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.

It doesn't show, but this immaculate Skymaster was delivered to the USAAF in June 1945 (as 45-507), which means that when this photo was taken, this beauty had just celebrated its 61st birthday. Roger Brooks purchased this former Arizona-based airtanker (ex Tanker 161) in February 2006. He used it to fly all kinds of freight out of its new homebase at Fairbanks, Alaska. Unfortunately it crashlanded near Nenana, AK on 17 January 2007. The wreck was stored at Nenana Airport and was still there by 2018.
