American Airlines was one of the most important customer and development partner of Douglas and pushed for the production of the DC-6, getting the first production airplane operating a total of 51 units.
American Airlines suffered some accidents due to a design flaw of the early DC-6 and grounded them in 1947 as a consequence, but kept using with great succes after the issues were solved and therefore pushed for the development of the DC-7 with longer range after that.
Here depicted is the N90738 "Flagship Dayton". I will probably do some more of the different flagships and can try to do some specific by request.
