Built in 1954, this antique plane is even older than my father. He is now resting at the Chena Hot Spring Airport after serving for Everts Air

Fantastic winter shot! So is this aircraft withdrawn from use now? Are they winding down DC-6 operations with the MD-80s coming into the fleet, or is this just one aircraft being parked?

I think this one has been withdrawn from use, but they still have DC-6 in their fleet.

This particular DC-6 N6174C was retired from Everts and has been displayed here for a few years. I think it'll be never fly again as I read an *uncertain* info on the internet that it would become a bar. And it's the only DC-6 wearing this retro livery with a great looking cheat line. I believe Everts will use other DC-6s in the future, as MD-80s can't be operated in Alaska's tiny and unpaved locations. Thank you so much Ubiquitous for sharing this great shot. It's one of the airplanes in the top 10 of my to-photograph list. - Akira Uekawa from Tokyo, Japan

I hope this aircraft is not reduced to a bar. It should be kept as a preserved aircraft. History belongs in a museum.
