Dumped on marshland for decades, this old C-47 was del. to the USAAF on 12Jun1943 as 42-23806 (…for sure she must have many interesting war stories to tell).Soon after WW II she was exported to Brazil where she was operated by Valadares Vasconcellos as PP-XAZ and by Linhas Aereas Paulistas as PP-LPE. In Jun1951 she was purchased by LAB as CP-583.She allegedly was owned by Lineas Aereas Canedo before going to her last operator, Trans Aereo San Miguel (titles still visible). C-47A TAM-37 is her longtime companion.
