Serge is correct... according to Joe Baugher's published information, this Douglas C-118 Liftmaster, MSN 44661, was built and accepted as USAF s/n 53-3290 and transferred to the US Navy as BuNo 152689. The current FAA registry shows 1955 as the year of manufacture.

My first trip to the US in 1955 was in a Pan Am Douglas DC6. Where do they find parts and the technical skills to maintain those double Wasps?

nice¡

Imagine the sound at takeoff of FOUR Wasp engines....wow.

From Wikipedia...Since Northern Air Cargo abandoned their regular service with the Douglas DC-6, Everts Air Cargo is the last airline in the USA to operate scheduled flights with a rather large fleet of 60-year-old piston-powered aircraft. In a 2007 video interview, the Anchorage Station Manager stated that the DC-6 was still considered to be a valuable aircraft for operations in the harsh conditions of Alaska, with excellent landing and takeoff performance on gravel runways. The downside is the difficulty to find Avgas and the maintenance labor cost. Everts Air Cargo estimates a ratio of 12 hours of maintenance for every single flying hour. Spare parts could also be a problem but Everts Air Cargo anticipates they will have enough in stock to keep the last DC-6 flying beyond 2020.

I've probably unloaded that Doug-6 at one time or another at a radar site. Looks like it's taking off from 33 at PANC, and is very near it's service ceiling of 1000'. Noisy, leaky and awesome. They can climb, but they choose to take it easy so they don't puke an engine, and I'd guess the company uses more 100LL than anyone else in Alaska.

It's a C-118A "Liftmaster" This particular aircraft first went to work for the USAF in 1955, hence it's "C" designation. Had it been built for commercial use, it would have been a DC6-A. So, there you go. All if this is easy to find if you use google.

Great camera work and what a subject!!
serge LOTH
LUC BARBIER , you 're right...for those who like "classic music" I recommand an old CD called "round sounds" I bought in Oshkosh in 1997, I hope it's still on the market..

Joe Baugher's published information regarding U.S. Navy aircraft adds this information:

(BuNo) "152689, (MSN 44661) ex-USAAF 53-3290. To MASDC as 8C0025 Jan 11, 1978. To civil registry as N747CE. Was stored at McClellan AFB, CA. Stored at Greybull, WY as N233HP Aug 2, 2006. After some years with Hawkins and Powers at Greybull, WY as spares source, registered to Everts Air Fuel in 2006 as N233HP. Since converted to fuel hauler and reregistered N747CE."

I worked as a loadmaster on this beauty for 2 years. That was an awesome job!
