American Airlines Douglas DC-3-G102-208  NC17336         (c/n  1961)

                                           Seen above is an early American Airlines DC-3 departing an undeveloped La Guardia field in
                                           the mid 1940s.  "Flagship Boston"  was delivered in July of 1937.  It was not apparently
                                           impressed into military service, but continued flying for American during the war.  It was sold
                                           in 1946 to Trans Texas Airlines. It later went to AC International as N696  It later reverted to
                                           its original rego of N17336 and is, I believe, still currently registered to Air International, Inc,
                                           a Texas Air company.
