Eastern Airlines Douglas DC-4 N90443 began life in 1946 as C-54A-15-DC c/n 10352. With WWII over airlines were scrambling to buy the surplus C-54s so 10352 became one of American Airlines acquisitions. From AA the aircraft was purchased by Eastern Airlines and became part of the "Great Silver Fleet". The first DC-4 service with Eastern took place on April 2 1946 between New York and Miami. 10352 next belonged to Miami Airlines followed by Trans Atlantic with the final owner being a gliding club who use it as a clubhouse.

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.
