Alaska Airlines originated in 1932 as McGee Airways and became Alaska Airlines in 1944. From 1946 until 1963 Alaska Airlines operated 3 former USAAF C-54 aircraft. One aircraft was former USAAF C-54 44-9013 c/n 27239 built in 1944 and had been acquired from American Airlines after WWII. In 1946 the aircraft was purchased by Alaska Airlines and retained the registration N90449 and named Starliner Seattle. On March 2, 1957 N90449 flew too low in cloud and hit a mountain while on approach to Seattle killing all 5 people on board.

Douglas DC-4

Designed to meet a United Airlines requirement for a long-range passenger airliner, the Douglas DC-4 was first flown on June 7, 1938. The prototype was a very ambitious four-engined, pressurized aircraft that was three times the size of its predecessor, the DC-3a design that proved far too expensive and difficult for civilian airlines to maintain. Douglas revised the design, but by the time it was complete WWII was well underway and development of the aircraft was channeled to the US military. Post-war, the DC-4 became a popular and reliable airliner with major carriers such as National and Northwest Airlines.
