ROLE

Douglas  DC-4

The Douglas DC-4 is a four-engined propeller-driven airliner developed
by the Douglas Aircraft Company. It served during World War II, in the
Berlin Airlift and into the 1960s in a military role. From 1945, many
civil airlines operated it worldwide. The DC-4's tricycle landing gear allowed
 its fuselage to be constant cross-section for most of its length, so it could be easily
 stretched into the later DC-6 and DC-7. A total of 1,163 C-54/R5Ds were built for
the United States military services between 1942 and January 1946. Douglas
continued to develop the type during the war in preparation for a return to
airline services when peace returned.

Very few DC-4s remain in service today. The last two passenger DC-4s believed
to be operating worldwide are all based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
A 1944 built DC4 is currently being restored in NSW, Australia.
