United Airlines Douglas DC-4 registration NC37534; textures only. From 1946 to 1961 United Airlines had 40 DC-4's in use. United used the DC4 on its trans continental route and was the last major US airline to have them in service. This is a repaint of Arik Hohmeyer's and Chris Grabow's FS2004 DC-4/C-54 (FS-Design Berlin) by Dale DeLuca. Requires DC44PAA.ZIP or another base DC-4 of FS-Design Berlin.
