B-1002 Douglas DC-4
Although CAT had two DC-4s in
1949, the only one ever seen was B-1002. The other, B-1004
either kept in military garb or was used so clandestinely that it never
appeared on any CAT
etc. B-1002 had
previously been operated by Philippine Airlines as PI-C108.
shots of it here were taken at what was then the international airport
for Taipei at Chung
Shan. The evocative image of it
below shows it in company with a C-46 and PBY-5A Catalina.
B-1002 was a common sight
at Chung Shan until 1965 when it was retired.
