Colonial Airlines  Douglas DC-3-227B  N21795         (c/n  2200)


Rare shot from the Mike Sparkman collection showing a DC-3 at Logan Airport in the final livery
                                     of the airline just before its merger with Eastern Air Lines.  N21795 was a former American Airlines
                                     machine acquired by Colonial in 1948.  It was one retained by Eastern after the buy-out, but, at that
                                     time (1956), the DC-3s were being phased out anyway, and hence it was only with EAL for a few
                                     months before becoming N9313R with Remmert Werner.     It spent some time with Basler Air and
                                     then had a couple more US registrations after that (N92U, N573R).      It was still current into the
                                     1990s but I am not sure of its final fate.
