I received this photograph from VASP in
1949. At that time the only indication of the airline was
"VASP" over the door (not visible in this image). PP-SPW was a
late model C-47B-50-DK
built in 1945 (45-1094).
Braniff acquired it in 1946 and sent it to their Mexican subsidiary,
as XA-GEG. When that entity folded in 1948 it was sold to
VASP. This aircraft was written
off in a
crash at Ribeirao Preto in Sao Paulo state on 11 December 1950..
This, then, makes the
poor that it is, quite rare.
