World Airways  Curtiss C-46  N1442V                            (c/n  22503)


  To illustrate the differing titling adopted by the nonskeds, compare Bill Larkins' shot above, taken
                                            at Oakland in August 1953 with the following entry of this C-46's sister ship N1443V.  This smaller
                                            font must have been World's original livery, however, since N1443V was civilianized for the airline
                                            in 1949, and was its first owner when leased from the USAAF.  Incidentally, for a thumbnail history
                                            of this company see the entry for the DC-4.   N1442V went to Capitol Airways in 1956 and was
                                            withdrawn from use in 1963.
