The N number shows that it was owned at one time by Don Gilbertson. He lost his certificate when the feds were examing log books and found him as a crew member in two different airplanes in two different places on the same day. I used to fly N44Dirty Gerdie for PAT Air out of St Louis. This was an ex American DC-6A. When Pat Air went bankrupt it was as sold to a new owner. When They were ferrying it to its new home they had an engine fire in the air and barely made it into Alton Illinois. It burned number two engine almost off the wing and burned a big hole in the flap behind it. We put an engine case with enough cylinders to mount a cowling in place of number two. There was a piece of plywood where the prop shaft normally was. We pop-riveted a piece of aluminum over the hole in the flap. I was the engineer when we ferryed it from Alton to STL. We left the gear down. It was the longest 10 minute flight I ever flew.
