EP-AAK  Douglas DC-3                                       (c/n  13016)


                                          Here's an interesting shot from the John Havers collection of a DC-3 taken at about the time
                                          (February 1962) that Iranian Airways merged with Persian Air Services (PAS) to form Iran
                                          National Airlines.  Shortly after that the corporate name was changed to Iran Air.  EP-AAK
                                          was a former C-47A-20-DK (42-93138) which became the RAF's Dakota III KG533,
                                          civilianized for Iranian Airlines in 1948.   It is reputed to have gone to domestic carrier Iran
                                          Aseman Airlines, although since that concern did not start until 1980, this seems unlikely.
