Transwest Air Express Douglas
This company seemed to
have taken over the operation of Air Charter West (formerly
Air), hence the
'ZZ' suffix on the rego of this DC-3, seen at Oakland in 1980 by Bill
Larkins. It flew
cargo charter services
evidently from 1977 until about 1979 with several DC-3s. .
rebuilt around 1978 using parts from another C-47A,
c/n 25371, ex N8GR, ex CF-BKT, ex RCAF
12955. It was probably up for sale when Bill's photo
was taken. It looked then to have been in
good shape but appears to have been
scrapped in Haiti in the 1980s.
