                                           East African Airways Corporation was formed in in 1946 in association with BOAC to service
                                           local routes within Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika.  This Dove was one of four delivered new
                                           to EAAC in 1948, replacing D.H.89A Rapides on many routes.  Originally to have been named
                                           "Swahili", it was soon changed to "Masai" after it was determined that the fleet should be named
                                           after tribes. The close-up below illustrates the aircraft much earlier than the shot above and is
                                           showing, as part of its livery, the individual kind of pictorial tribal display described under VP-KDF
                                           This Dove was sold to Mandated Airlines in New Guinea in 1951, becoming VH-MAL.
