    I love the Kalitta,(I have a Hogan like model of it) as I am a cargo guy. I assume the Delta is an ex Air Canada machine? I am not certain all the -500's were from Air Canada?

    This last photo is simply brilliant. Air Canada had a huge number of DC-9's for years. The National DC-10 is self explanatory.

    IPEC/ Independent Air Freighters operated two Douglas DC-9 freight aircraft for several years before disposing of both, destined for Evergreen International in the US via a broker.
    The aircraft are N941F, ex VH-IPC and N942F ex VH-IPF and are here at Ansett Maintenance Tullamarine, on the 9th February 1999.
    These were the last two genuine DC-9's to operate in Australia.

    This smart L-1049E Super Constellation was delivered as PH-LKA 'Isotoop' to KLM in May 1954. Upgraded to Super G standard in 1956 and leased to Air Ceylon November 1958. Later registered 4R-ACH 'Somadevi'. Returned to KLM in November 1960. Leased as EC-AQL 'La Confiada' to Iberia until May 1962. Restored again as PH-LKA and operated in Iberia colors with KLM titles until August 1962, stored end of 1962 and scrapped in 1964. Photographed at Paya Lebar Airport, Singapore; zoggavia collection via Scott Henderson.

    Swissair's Douglas DC-8-32 just 2 months after its delivery, still named 'Matterhorn', later 'Geneve'. Converted to DC-8-33 in March 1961. Was sold as D-ADIM in 1968 to Südflug which was later suceeded by Atlantis. Afterwards HS-TGW with Thai Airways. Then N45908 with Overseas International and Agro-Air; HI-435 with Aeromar. Later as HK-3178X flying with LAC Columbia as DC-8-33F. Image taken at IDL in June 1960; zoggavia collection.
