YS-44 Douglas DC-4-1009
As can clearly be seen, this image is from a
postcard, and not a very good one at that. Fortunately,
aircraft is carrying its c/n on the nose and hence turns out to be
YS-44. Tacky though it is, it is
shot I have of a TACA International Airlines aircraft. This
DC-4 was a post war purpose-
DC-4 (i.e. not a converted C-54) and was originally Western Air
Lines' N10201. They sold
still virtually brand new to Waterman Airlines, a subsidiary of the
Waterman Steamship Lines,
who were a
major shareholder of TACA. It was transferred to TACA
International in 1947.
it was re-registered YS-02C.
