Douglas C-54E-5-DO Skymaster was built as c/n 27311 with serial 44-9085 and delivered to the USAAF on April 5, 1945. Not long after it was bought back by the Douglas Aircraft Company and converted to a civil DC-4. On November 14, 1946 the aircraft was purchased by Pan American World Airways as N88886 and named "Clipper Mandarin" and later wore "Clipper Frankfurt", "Clipper Pegasus" and "Clipper Hannover". In January 1961 this aircraft was sold to Trans Mediterranean and then to Aviation Traders in November 1963 and converted to an ATL-98 Carvair.

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.
