Airlines Douglas DC-3 N95487
By the early 1950s
Pacific Southwest Airlines was known universally as PSA. Many
did not even
know (or probably care) what the initals stood for.
This also was the era of the
registrations painted on the fin. This DC-3 was built as a
US Navy R4D-1 (BuAer
3134) and civilianized in 1948.
PSA sold it off to Piedmont Airlines as N57V. This shot was taken
at San Francisco, circa 1952.
