PP-VCE  Curtiss C-46                             (c/n    30656)


                                     This is an extract from the photograph of PP-VBO.  As indicated elsewhere, VARIG used their
                                     C-46s on passenger services (most civil C-46s were cargo machines).  VARIG acquired this ex
                                     C-46A-50-CU (42-101201) from Mexico where it had been XA-HAM.   It was owned by
                                     TABA in the 1970s and then passed to the Museu Eduardo Matarazzo (primarily an antique/
                                     classic automobile collection) where Martin Bernsmuller advises that it still resides (in the open)
                                     at Bebedouro, 400 km northeast of Sao Paulo.
