Delta Air Lines  Curtiss C-46    N9884F                    (c/n  33132)


                                       In 1957 Delta purchased five C-46s from Civil Air Transport (CAT) for air freight purposes.
                                    .  They were acquired via Asiatic Aeronautical Co in Taiwan and hence had the 'F' suffix
                                       registrations, indicating a foreign base.   N9884F was an ex C-46D-10-CU, previously
                                       B-874.  The C-46s were used for about a decade and did sterling work.  N9884F was
                                       sold in the Republic of Congo as 9Q-CZF. .
