This was built as a freighter in 1958. Does anyone know if it is still flying?

Paul Wisgerhof - Everts Air Cargo still operates a fleet of eight (8) DC-6 aircraft.

The FAA civil registration for N9056R is current and assigned to a DC-6...

Nice subject, but you have to ask yourself "Why"? Surely they don't make economic sense anymore?

Zantop, then Universal, then back to Zantop Airlines flew these out of YIP late 60s, early 70’s. Lost one to an engine fire on final without injury, but a/c was totaled.

Oh the trill of flying starts in a recip! As a mechanic, nothing compares to the overall knowledge learned from working on a
DC-6/C-118A.

Alan Hume, they don't make economic sense for flying freight from JFK to ATL or MIA to DFW or SEA to LAX. However neither Boeing or Airbus make an aircraft that will fly 30,000 lbs of freight from PANC to PFCR,PANC to PAEM,FAI to Little Squaw (05A) or any other 4000 ft gravel runway. Well actually they do but you wouldn't be able to use the airplane again.
