Douglas DC-6 / C-118

Built as an enlarged and pressurised DC-4 in order to compete with the Lockheed Constellation, the DC-6 (as the XC-112A) first flew on 15 February 1946. It had a 2.06m longer fuselage than the DC-4, accommodation for 48-52 passengers and was powered by four 1,565kW Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp CA15 engines. American Airlines and United Air Lines introduced the DC-6 on 27 April 1946. A total of 175 DC-6 were built. The windowless DC-6A freighter followed in 1949, powered by 1,788.5kW Double Wasps, with reinforced floor and double cargo doors - 74 were built.

The DC-6A was 1.52m longer than the DC-6 (101 going to the USAF as C-118A transports). The DC-6B, with accommodation for 54-102 passengers, first flew on 2 February 1951 and also had the longer fuselage. American Airlines introduced DC-6B on its US transcontinental services on 29 April 1951. It was one of the finest and most economical piston-engined transports. It remained in production until 1958 and 288 were built. Many of the DC-6 series were later converted to freighters.

I am a retired Marine CWO-4. In 1976, I was a young F-4 Radar Tech stationed at Kaneohe Hawaii, but deployed to Miramar for Top Gun. Out on a weekend liberty, I managed to dislocate a shoulder. My unit was trying to get me a free ride back to Hawaii and the only thing they could find was a 3 star admiral's plane leaving out of North Island. It was this beautifully maintained and highly polished C-118. It was one of the longest, but by far the best flight I have ever been on.

ERICA PHILIP, 10.10.2017

Brett Sanders, 15.07.2016

When my wife and I broke up I was completely lost,i was completely lost because we are all now know that good woman is hard to find. Thanks to my good friend of mine that introduce me to a love spell caster who brought back his wife when he saw me going down everyday thinking about the breakup between me and my wife. My friend talked nice about this spell caster called Chief Priest Akpe Osilama which his email address is: To me i was like what do you mean that there is a way i can get my wife back with the use of spells to let my wife know that i truly love her and she will come back. My friend said yes that this spell caster did it for him and now he is happy with his wife back as never before. So i found it nice that it will also be good for me to seek help from the same spell caster to help bring back my wife. At first i was scared but he assured me that he only use white magic which is safe and has no side effects. I felt a little better and decided to do the return lover spell. I did not think that it would work considering my wife and her whole family don't want me to contact them again. Within 1 and half day after the spell is cast she showed up at my office telling me that she has missed me more than she could imagine. We got back together and made Chief Priest Akpe Osilama our marriage adviser and ever since that day our marriage has been better the second time. Appreciation to Chief Priest Akpe, because if there is another spell caster like you in the world, the world will be a better place for everybody to live and be happy. you can as well contact him on the email address up on this article.
