Originally built as a C-54 for the US Air Force in 1944, this was sold to Qantas Empire Airways in 1949. In 1961 it was re-registered with the identifier VH-EDB and was given the name "Norfolk Trader". This DC-4 was mainly used on routes from mainland Australia to Norfolk Island, a small group of islands around 1,400 km east of the Australian coast, until it was finally sold in 1977.

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-3-a 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.
