Pacific Western Airlines   Douglas DC-4 Model


Item Description:

This is a small plastic desk model of the Pacific Western Airlines Douglas DC-4 aircraft.   PWA aquired two US war surplus DC-4 aircraft in November 1957 to fly a cargo supply run for the new DEW Line being constructed in Artic Circle at the time.   Later the aircraft were reconfigured to a 60 passenger seating configuration and flew the first Airbus flight between Calgary and Edmonton on May 21, 1963.    


The DC-4 and DC-6 were often confused.  One way to distinguish them apart is the DC-4 has oval shaped passenger cabin windows and the DC-6 has square windows.   

This model is made by a Dutch company IMC/CMD/PPC back in the 1990s.  The scale is 1:200 and is in excellent condition.  The model bears the Canadian tail ident CF-PWB, as pictured in the image above.
