Air New England
Douglas DC-3 (DST-A207)
In 1971 Air New England acquired the first of
what would become a modest fleet of six DC-3s.
N18105 was originally built as a Douglas
Sleeper Transport for United Airliners' transcontinental
night runs from New York to San Francisco. It was impressed into
USAAF service as C-48B
42-56100 during WW2. After the war it went to Trans Texas
Airways. By the time ANE
it had been upgraded to include main gear wheel doors, as seen in the
Garrard taken at New Bedford Regional Airport in June 1977.
