About This File

This folder contains a repaint for the Douglas C-54 / DC-4 by Flight Replicas. It shows Douglas C-54 KX-1 OT-CWU of the Belgian Air Force. In 1950 the Belgian Air Force acquired a Douglas C54A-10-DC Skymaster from Sabena to improve passenger conditions on the link to and from the Belgian Congo. KX-1 OT-CWU was c/n 10326 42-72221 and served with the US Navy as BuNo39174. It came to Belgium in 1947 and flew with Sabena as OO-CBS. In 1954 a second aircraft was bought from S.A.S. this being a DC-4-1009. With the appearance in 1958 of the larger C-118 (DC-6) both aircraft were mainly used as pure freighters.  Both aircraft operated by the Melsbroek based 21st Squadron of the 15th Transport wing were withdrawn from use in 1971 and although both survived for some years (KX-1 at Torhout, KX-2 at Southend (U.K.) they finally were scrapped.
