No, we don’t have a real airplane in the collection– but we do have this cool model plane!
Have you ever flown in a C-54D airplane, either as a passenger or at the controls? How about seeing one flying overhead in the Canal Zone?
What would a plane like this have been used for? Was it mainly a passenger plane, or was it used to transport materials?
Does anyone know what years this type of plane may have flown in the Canal Zone?
Was there perhaps something interesting or special about this type of plane that it was available as a model?
If you know of any information we can add to the database record for this model airplane, or have a great story about a C-54D airplane, please share it with us in the comments section!
