Northern Consolidated Airlines    Shorts SC.7  Skyvan 2      N4906    (c/n  SH.1837)


                                          Two of the three box-like Skyvans had been delivered to NCA before that airline merged with
                                          Wien Alaska Airlines in March of 1968.  This was the first one. These early series 2 models were
                                          powered by two 520 hp Astazou II turboprops.  The later models had Garratt TPE-331-201s.
                                          I am not sure if this one was retroactively fitted or not.   It passed to the asset register of Wien
                                          Consolidated and flew with them for a number of years after the merger  This photograph is from
