Douglas DC-6A/C Liftmaster
Four engine transport/passenger aircraft
Due to the expansion of pilot training at Kamina (Belgian Congo) an urgent need arose for large passenger transport capacity. In 1958, two new DC-6A aircraft were purchased from the manufacturer Douglas which were joined in 1960 by two former Sabena DC-6Cs. All aircraft were operated by the Melsbroek based 21st Squadron of the 15th Transport Wing. In 1976 the four aircraft were sold to a French company. KY-2 is still operational with a freight company in Florida, while KY-1 is still to be found as a derelict restaurant at Bogor in Indonesia.
