These textures depict N96BL (c/n 43574) of Aerial Transit. Harold Bellomy and Charles Lawson founded 1963 the Bellomy & Lawson Company in Miami FL, buying DC-6 aircrafts an convert them to pure freighters. They run Challenge Air Transport and sold this airline 1982. Then they started 1983 a part 121 operation under the trading name "Aerial Transit" and ceased operations in 1991. The DC-6 aircrafts of aerial Transit, flying throughout the Caribbean and Central America and were often leased out to other operators of the region. N96BL was built 1952 as C-118A and delivered to the USAF as 51-3827. In 1976 bought by Bellomy & Lawson and registered as N3492F the aircraft served with Challenge AT and re-registered as N96BL from october 1983 until 1991 with Aerial Transit. Aerial Transits DC-6 always looking a little bit shabby and when flying this aircraft, keep in mind it has no pressurisation and no superchargers. So if you are forced to go above 10 000 ft take some oxygen bottles with you!
