                                              In the late 1940s the airlines began to develop an interest in the air freight business.   Most passenger
                                              airlines had (and still do have) a freight diivision.  Some, like American, took delievery of all purpose
                                              built all freight aircraft.  One such was the Douglas DC-6A, commonly known as the "windowless
                                              wonder".   Why put windows in if no one will ever look out of them?    N90782 "Airfreighter Dallas"
                                              is seen here at American Airlines' maintenance hangar at LAX in 1959.     It is still on the register and
                                              has been owned for the last twenty odd years by the Hill Air Company of Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
