About This File
This folder contains a repaint for the A2A Wings of Silver Lockheed L-049 Constellation. It shows L-1049 N6504C (c/n 4166) in the first colours of Seaboard & Western Airlines, an all-cargo company based in new York that started in 1946 with DC-4's, but in 1954 bought 9 L-1049 Constellations, of which N6504C was one. It was leased to BOAC for one year, in 1955, being painted in BOAC colors, but retaining its US registration. The aircraft traded hands several times with the last owner being North American Aircraft Trading and registered as 5T-TAC. In 1968 while being used in the Biafra Airlift the aircraft was destroyed in Nigeria.
Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paintkit by A2A.
