This rare Packet (delivered to the USAF in 1948 as 45-57814) was used to haul cargo (mainly fish) all through Alaska. In 1992 it was sold and flown to Greybull, WY, where it still survives today as the world's only flying Packet. It flew with <a href="http://www.airliners.net/open.file/798052/M/" target="_blank">TWA</a> from 1956 to 1972, and the remnants of their livery are still visible on the tail. Also visible are very faded "Briles" titles, from its time with Briles Wing & Helicopter during the mid-70's.
