VH-INZ   Douglas DC-4    'Ratmalana'                             (c/n  3077)


                                              VH-INZ was a very early DC-4, built in 1943 as a C-54A-DO (first block) but went immediately
                                              to the US Navy as a R5D-1.    Like VH-INY it was also owned, after WW II, by the Matson
                                              steamship line and then sold to Air Ceylon.  After stints as VP-CBE and CY-ACB, it was acquired
                                              by ANA in 1950.  When the DC-6s joined the fleet, VH-INY was re-painted in the pseudo-National
                                              Airlines livery, as my shot below illustrates.   Following its sale in 1957 to Twentieth Century Airlines
                                              as N5512V it led a convoluted life with many operators:, to wit:  As HP-351 with Aeronaves de
                                              Panama in 1962;  as 5N-AFC with Pan African Airlines in 1966; was to have become VP-BCX
                                              with Caribbean Air Charters in 1967 but the deal fell through;  went instead to Crossroads Aviation
                                              as N11117 and wound up in Phnom Penh in 1975.  It is quite possibly still there.
