Pan American Airways operated a total of 22 DC-4s between 1947 and 1961. "Clipper Westward Ho" was built as a C-54G Skymaster, serial #45-0590, for the USAAF. It was converted to DC-4 standard by Douglas in early 1947 and leased to Pan Am on 28 February 1947. After six years with the airline, the aircraft was returned to the USAF in 1953 and operated until retirement and storage at Davis Monthan AFB.

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.
