Hawaiian Airlines  Douglas DC-3  N33606               (c/n   4806)


                                     In the early 1950s, in an attempt to update their DC-3s, several of them were converted to have
                                     large "vista windows" (the better to give the haoles a better view of the islands).  Main wheel gear
                                     doors were also fitted at that time (Super DC-3 style).  N33606, Hawaiian's very first DC-3, was
                                     so converted, as were N13437,N67872, N67873 and N95469 (there may have been others).

                                     the 1960s.
