appear to title their aircraft....or at least I have never
seen a shot of one with the
airline name showing. This DC-3 had just undergone
photo, from the John Havers collection, was taken. An ex
C-47A-1-DK (and ex-RAF
FZ587) it was originally civilianized by Hindustan Aeronautics for
Kalinga, circa 1943.
was written off when it struck a 13,800 foot high Sela Pass in poor
visibility on 21 Sept
Five passengers and the crew of three perished.
