VP-BAP Douglas DC-3
This rare photograph was taken in 1947 and
shows a Bahamas DC-3 before the loose association
BOAC took place. Later this machine would have had a psuedo-BOAC
style livery complete
white top, blue cheat line and the registration on the fin and rudder
between blue bars.
VP-BAP was built as a C-47A-20-DK Skytrain (43-93226). It was
civkilianized in 1946 as
and sold to Jamaica Airways as VP-JAP. Bahamas acquired it in
1948. It was
later sold to BWIA as VP-TBF. .
