 This aircraft was built as C-47A 42-93190 and delivered to USAAF during April 1944. No record card is available for its military service. On 11/30/62 it was sold as scrap to U.S. Salvage Corp, but the following September it was purchased by Charlotte Aircraft Corporation as N4731S. This registration was cancelled 2/16/66. Sold at auction on 3/11/68 and nine months later was owned by Aviation Investments Inc. Butler Aviation of Miami, FL purchased the plane on 6/28/71. After being leased to different operators over the years, it was registered to ABR Enterprises on 3/21/78 and sold the following year. Re-registered to Victor Air Inc as N902VC during July 1986.
