A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
WWII in Europe had only ended a few months earlier when Overseas Airlines
introduced the first commercial North Atlantic DC-4 service. Another first took place on
March 7, 1946 when American Airlines introduced U.S. DC-4 domestic service and
converted C-54s carried more passengers than any other four-engine transport.

USAAF on April 5, 1945. Not long after it was bought back by the Douglas Aircraft Company and
converted to a civil DC-4. On November 14, 1946 the aircraft was purchased by Pan American
World Airways as N88886 and named "Clipper Mandarin" and later wore "Clipper Frankfurt",
"Clipper Pegasus" and "Clipper Hannover". In January 1961 this aircraft was sold to Trans
