This was the last Carvair
conversion. The image above is from the Peter Gates collection.
As a DC-4, it was purchased from Japan Air Lines in
1965 (ex-JA6015) and
Carvair status in
1968. Below is a rare shot from the Bob Neate collection
showing the air-
craft, still as a DC-4, at Essendon in March 1965
after it had been ferried from Tokyo.
After its Ansett days
it followed the same path as its stablemate, VH-INK,
going first to
Singapore and then on to New Zealand (as ZK-NWB), and finaslly to
Hawaii Pacific Air
as N5459M. Its current status is unknown.
