SE-BBA  Douglas DC-4-1009                        (c/n  42905)


                               In 1946 Svensk Interkontinetal Lufttrafik AB (SILA), the Swedish international airline company
                               which, in essence, was the holding company for AB Aerotransport (Swedish Air Lines) ordered
                               a fleet of six brand new DC-4s from Douglas.  SE-BBA, the first, was delivered in April of that
                               year.   It is seen in the nice ABA shot above climbing out of Stockholm's Bromma Airport.  After
                               being absorbed in the SAS fleet in 1948 it was sold to Avianca in 1953 as HK-173.
