Violent ex-cop Vic Barron comes to Ketchikan, Alaska seeking revenge on an old enemy.
Registration N6538C, c/n 43838.
Short fuselage DC-6, delivered to UA in the late 40’s.
In its earlier PAA’s livery, silver finish, white letters over blue stripe and big US flag on the tail fin.
Founded as Ellis Air Transport in 1936, then Ellis Air Lines in 1945 till 1962 when the company merged with Alaska Coastal Airlines into Alaska Coastal-Ellis Airlines. They used several ex US Navy and US Coast Guard Grumman Goose. Though black&white shots are rather well matching for “film noir” in an esthetical way, it’s a pity to not see the beautiful colour these Gooses worn. See discussion page.
In 1954, it can be a Cessna 170 or a Cessna 180 Skywagon. Impossible to be sure without a view of the tail fin.
