Avionics / Radios
  • There are some older instruments remaining in the panel

  • The plywood floor has been removed to check for corrosion in the belly of the aircraft, it is full of zinc chromate. The walls still have cargo ops plastic installed on them.

  • Some sheet metal work will need to be done to repair this aircraft including the skin above the Pilot's windshield, and skin approximately where the Navigator's compartment was. Copilot wing will need repaired, Pilot's wing needs checked over. Wings have a "bolted on" flap bay which means they can be taken apart & trailered down the road without requiring oversized permits. The center section is the same way.

Additional Remarks
  • We are proud to offer up this C-49K. Originally being built for American Airlines, the US joined the war and decided she would serve great as part of Air Transport Command. She was sent to Morrison Field in West Palm Beach Florida for use in the 27th AAF Ferrying Wing (later renamed Caribbean Wing) for the war. In June 1945 she restarted her airline career flying for Eastern, Frontier, Southern, Zantop, & Capitol. In 1956 she was converted by Remmert-Werner, of St. Louis, to a corporate/executive configuration for the Union Camp Paper Company. In 1973 She was purchased for cargo operations. The owners flew her in the D-Day 50th anniversary flight. In 2008 she received some damage from a tornado, and she has sat since.
