Empire Air Lines
Douglas DC-3 N62373
Empire upgraded to DC-3s in March of
1948. Color scheme at this time was a dark green cheat
with "Empire" in red. Empire Air Lines was
absorbed by West Coast
Airlines on 4 Aug 1952.
Only the DC-3s passed to WCA, the
Boeing 247s having been sold off. Since photographs of
DC-3s in Empire
markings are extremely rare, I will append another one below, albeit a
scratchy image. Both aircraft were ex military
C-47As. Tim Bradley has done a nice color
profile of N62373 (foot of the
page) which will be of value to modelers.
