About This File
FS2004/FSX Martinair Douglas DC-6A Biafra. On 13 December 1966 the Dutch charter company Martinair Holland (MAC), bought a Douglas DC-6A registered PH-MAM. From late October 1968 till the beginning of January 1970, PH-MAM flew on the Biafra airlift from the island of Fernando Po to Uli airstrip to provide humanitarian aid, on behalf of the Dutch Red Cross. Having returned from this mission, the aircraft was overhauled and used by Martinair for one more year, before being sold to Yugoslavia. The inspiration for this repaint was a coincidental meeting at Schiphol many years ago with former Martinair Captain Dries van Ommen. He was in command of PH-MAM during the Biafra airlift. We had a nice conversion, accompanied by the impressive sight and sound of a DC-6 during take off. These are textures only. You will need California Classic's FS2004/FSX Douglas DC-6B CB-16 Base Pack, DC-6A CB-17 Base Pack and DC-6A CB-16 base pack. Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.
