This DC-4 was a 'late comer' to
the Ansett-ANA fleet (at least as far as DC-4s were concerned),
since it was not
acquired by the until July of 1964. .It went into service as a
freighter in September
year. Originally a new DC-4-1009 delivered to National Airlines
in 1946 as NC37684 it
purchased from Japan Air Lines (already in cargo configuration) and was
sold by Ansett-ANA in 1973 it was re-registered in the US as N32AC and,
legal issues, was eventually leased to South East Air Transport.
It then went to Air Cambodge
abandoned at Phnom Penh in April 1975. It was apparently
destroyed on the ground by
Rouge forces sometime after that. George Canciani's shot
below was taken at Tullarmarine
in 1973 just prior to its departure from Australia.
