In 1958 Douglas DC-6A c/n 45531/1015 was factory built with a main deck freight door. In June 1958 the Northern Aircraft Operating Company had the aircraft imported to the UK where it went to work for Hunting-Clan Air Transport as G-APNO. In 1960 Air Work Services merged with Hunting-Clan to form British United Airways. In January 1969 the aircraft was sold to Balair with a registration of HB-IBS and operating for the International Red Cross until June 1975. HB-IBS was converted into a DC-6B configuration by removing the front freight door and re-skinning the fuselage and used for charters. In 1982 the aircraft was sold to Conair Aviation in Canada where it was registered as C-GBIS and converted to a water bomber.

Douglas DC-6B

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a larger-capacity transport than the C-54 (DC-4), the Douglas DC-6 was first flown on June 29th, 1946.
