The DC-6 is a piston-powered airliner and transport aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1946 to 1958. The DC-6 was originally designed as a military transport towards the end of World War II, but it was reworked after the war to compete with the Lockheed Constellation in the long-range commercial transport market. Over 700 DC-6s have been built and many still fly today in cargo, military and wildfire control roles. This specific model is painted in the American Airlines paint scheme. American Airlines is a major U.S. airline headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. American Airlines operates an extensive international and domestic network, with scheduled flights throughout North America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
