Very rare shot just after ferry flight as this famous DC-6 is pushed back into the hangar for refurbishment, still in its Yemen Airways colours with crudely scrubbed titles. Delivered to Maritime Central in 1958, she first arrived in the UK later that year being registered G-APSA with Cunard Eagle. Saudi Arabian bought her in 1964 and donated to Yemen in 1971, where she became 4W-ABQ. Another DC-6 still survives (just) in a very derelict state at Sana'a.
