N90433 was built in 1942 for the USAAF as Douglas C-54A c/n 10410 and serial 42-72305. In September 1946 it was delivered to American Airlines as N90433 until March 1949 when it was leased to El Al Israeli Airlines as 4X-ACC and named Rechovoth. In January 1952 the aircraft began operations with Flying Tiger Line.

Douglas C-54 Skymaster

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.
