Douglas DC-3-414A (c/n 4971)

TC-ABA was a 1942 DC-3 built to a United Air Lines order (was to have been NC33692), but this delivery was thwarted by World War II and the aircraft passed immediately to the USAAF as a C-53C-DO (43-2027). When civilianized in 1946 it went to Devlet Hava Yolları (Turkish State Airline), which was later renamed to THY Türk Hava Yolları – Turkish Airlines. When retired by THY it went to the Turkish Air Force as ETI-06, later 6006.
