Los Angeles Air Service  Curtiss C-46  N1663M                     (c/n  22548)

                                          In addition to their DC-4s, LAAS also operated a small fleet of C-46s (and also some C-47s).
                                          This one was at Hawthorne Municipal Airport in October 1956, having just come off a lease to
                                          Resort Airlines.  As with several other of these non-sked airliners with minuscule regos, I have
                                          enlarged the tail below.  The livery shown was the defacto standard for LAAS.
