VH-DGX  Douglas DC-3                                    (c/n 12142)


                                    For some reason Kalinga Air Lines did not 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 maintenance
                                    when this photo, from the John Havers collection, was taken.   An ex C-47A-1-DK (and ex-RAF
                                    Dakota IV FZ587) it was originally civilianized by Hindustan Aeronautics for Kalinga, circa 1943.
                                    VT-DGX was written off when it struck a 13,800 foot high Sela Pass in poor visibility on 21 Sept
                                    1962.  Five passengers and the crew of three perished.
