Airlines Douglas DC-6A
In the late 1940s and early 1950s NWA began
going into the air freight business in a big way.
Clearly the passenger aircraft did not have
the capacity for sharing large loads of cargo and
hence initially several DC-4s were converted to all freight
configuration. However, in 1953 a
fleet of purpose-built freighter aircraft in the form of the DC-6A was
leased from all freight
Flying Tiger Lines. N34957 was one of them.
