VH-INV    Douglas DC-6    'Nairana'                                      (c/n  43056)

                                         When ANA purchased two Douglas DC-6s from National Airlines of Miami in 1953, they were
                                         so taken with the livery that National was using that they adopted it as their own, with a few subtle
                                         changes.  Compare this to the shot of the National DC-6 in my Airlines section (under the US Civil
                                         collection).   This aircraft was the former N90892.   It was sold to Transit Equipment Company in
                                         the US in 1960 as N74841, and written off in a landing at Oakland, California in 1967, whilst owned
                                         by non scheduled carrier Saturn Airways..
