Ethiopian had this one remaining DC-6B in 1981. This craft was originally delivered to Canadian Pacific in 1958 and also served with Trans Caribbean and was built much earlier than those built for Ethiopian. This DC-6 joined the airline in 1978. The original three DC-6Bs (ET AAX, Y and Z) delivered new to Ethiopian in 1958 had extremely interesting histories, including the opening of the first coast to coast route between East and West Africa.
