Caribbean Airways Curtiss C-46 N69346
Caribbean only operated two C-46s; this one and N69343. They were
the first civilian
owners of this ex
C-46F-1-CU (44-78578), having taken delivery of it in June 1948.
Larkins' shot above was taken at Oakland in
September 1952. It was later leased to Meteor
Transport and Capitol
Airways for their Quicktrans Navy contract (see foot of that page
for a photo of it in
that livery). It had many many owners later in its career
and finally wound
in Colombia as HK-3205.
