Overseas Airlines Douglas DC-3 N90908
American Overseas Airways maintained two DC-3s at London's Heathrow
Airport from 1946 until
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.
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.
