LN-NAE Douglas DC-3
This image came from a post card
acquired from Fred. Olsen Airtransport Ltd in the late 1940s.
It always looks a little
"doctored" to me. A noted (and still current) shipping company,
Olsen branched out into air transportation shortly after WW II.
It ran successfully until 1997
then divested itself of its aircraft operating division. LN-NAE
was one of several DC-3s
initially by the company in the 1940s and 50s. It was a former
RAF Dakota IV, KG363.
was written off in a crash on 2 April 1952 while on approach to
while on a charter flight from Madrid.
