Douglas DC-4 C-54 is a DVD that offers footage of operational DC-4s in Canada, Germany, Alaska, Netherlands, and South Africa.
In February 1936, Douglas began the design of a large four-engine commercial transport that would be capable of carrying twice as many passengers as the DC-3 over distances of 2200 miles. The result: The Douglas DC-4 / C-54 Skymaster!
On February 14, 1942, the first DC-4, designated a C-54 Skymaster for the military, took flight and started the age of the four-engine transport. The production line closed in 1947, but many of the military variants found use in civil service. A total of 1,245 were produced.
