American Overseas Airlines  Douglas DC-3  N90908    (c/n  13783)


                                             American Overseas Airways maintained two DC-3s at London's Heathrow Airport from 1946 until
                                             1950, when the airline merged with Pan American, and the latter airline took them over.  I am not
                                             sure what their role was.  The above shot was taken by F/L D.A.S. MacKay at Heathrow in 1950,
                                             just after "NC" had been changed by the FAA to become "N".  The other machine was N90909.
                                             The fact that this aircraft is named "Flagship Nairobi" might indicate they were used on extension,
                                             or shuttle type runs between London and Africa. This may, or may not have been the case.
