Flying Tiger Line  Douglas DC-3   NC59699                     (c/n  13061)


                                        Still fresh from their days with the American Volunteer Group in China, whose P-40s were adorned
                                        with shark's teeth, the founders of Flying Tigers perpetuated this theme on their recently purchased
                                        C-47s.    This Bill Larkins photo was taken at San Francisco in 1946.  FTL operated approximately
                                        a dozen or so before gradually acquiring the more capacious C-46s and later C-54s.      NC59699
                                        was an ex C-47A-20-DK, USAAF serial 42-93178 civlianized in 1946.      When sold by Tigers it
                                        went to India as VT-CTZ.
