The Douglas DC6B's of SAS became famous for opening the first polar (great circle) route from Europe to the USA, flying from Copenhagen to Los Angeles via Greenland and Canada. SAS used fourteen DC-6B's in 1952-64. Four liveries (early, middle and late) included. Repaint by Jens B. Kristensen of original model by Greg Pepper and Tom Gibson, flight dynamics by FS Aviator modified for FS2004 by Tom Gibson. Panel and sounds must be downloaded from calclassic.

Install by unzipping to your Flight Simulator 9\aircraft folder, using the 'use folder names' option. If you want to, you can extract two sets of flights 'over the pole' as well into your Flight Simulator 9\flights folder. The flights are only approximations to the actual flights, as good as I could make them with the Flight Simulator's Flight Planner.

Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) used 14 DC-6B's in all during 1952-1964, most were retired or sold off by 1961 when they were replaced by DC-8s and Caravelles. In the 'fifties, SAS became famous for flying the first routes 'over the pole'. The first was the great circle routes from Scandinavia (Copenhagen) to Los Angeles with stops in Greenland (Thule, later Sondre Stromfjord) and Edmonton, Alberta.

This package contains early, middle and late liveries:

OY-KMA Torkil Viking (DC-6B c/n 43548), the first DC-6B in the SAS fleet, accept date may 26, 1952.

OY-KME Arild Viking, the first airliner to fly the great circle route from Los Angeles via Thule to Copenhagen in 1952. This was a test flight without paying passengers. The delivery flights of the DC-6B's were used to gain experience before opening the route a few years later.

LN-LMO Hjalmar Viking (DC-6B c/n 43745) was accepted by SAS December 4, 1952, and is shown here in a colour scheme of the mid fifties when the modern SAS logo had been introduced on the fin.

OY-KMI Helge Viking (DC-6B c/n 44166) was accepted by SAS October 17, 1953. Helge Viking opened the Copenhagen-Greenland-Los Angeles route in 1955, but here it is shown in its final color scheme, a year before retirement in 1961.
