 To USAAF Jan 15, 1945. To Cathay Pacific Airlines as VR-HEC. Chartered to user in Indonesia which was linked to the potential sale of the aircraft. Bought by Indonesian Airways Oct 14, 1948. In Aug 1950 to Indonesian nationalist air force (AURI) as RI-001, named Seulawah, then used by Indonesian Airways. Flown under charter to Burmese government during 1945 and part of 1950.

 Just some small corrections concerning the information of Joe Baugher. This airplane is bought by Indonesian Airways Oct 14, 1948 and registrated as RI-001 and named SEULAWAH. Then in August 1950 used by AURI without registration RI-001 en without name Seulawah. The airplane did not returned to Indonesian Airways. Flown under charter (also RI-007 c/n unknown and RI-009 c/n 4823) to Burmese Government during period 28-01-1949 until August 1950 when it was taken over by the AURI.
