The DC-4, built as a successor to the “iconic” DC-3 with 4 radial engines and a much larger fuselage, became the prime “heavy” transport for the U.S. Forces which carried men and material to every theater of WWII. After the war the DC-4 became the main hero of the Berlin Airlift. With Berlin surrounded and cut off from the West, airlifting supplies of food and fuel was the only way to keep the population from starving or freezing to death. After a successful life as one of the world’s great airliners, of the 1,200 built only a handful survive today. These aging few still supply food and fuel to rural populations. Cut from the aluminum skin of a retired DC-4 this Plane Tag will allow you to share the Aviation History of this fine aircraft.
