American Flyers Airlines  Douglas DC-4  N30057                    (c/n  10478)


                                    This was formerly United Air Lines' 'Mainliner Paul Bunyan'.  For the registration, see the
                                    enlargement below.  Somewhere in the mid 1950s American Flyers acquired a small number
                                    of DC-4s to augment their DC-3s, and pending procurement of their Constellations.   The
                                    above shot was taken at Oakland, circa 1955.      Like most of their early equipment this
                                    DC-4 was probably leased - possibly from United.
