Built in 1944, this C-54 was first used in the Pacific War Theater during World War II. For the air transport of coal to the western sectors of the city, whose access was blocked by land from the GDR, it was rebuilt accordingly. To support the Berlin Airlift she came from January 1949 from the Rhein-Main Air Base near Frankfurt for use. Today, the C-54, serial number 44-9030, is part of the Air Mobility Command Museum at Dover, Delaware Air Force Base.
