Douglas DC-6 fuselage on the roof of a building


Fairbanks, Alaska (AK), US
Former "Cloudmaster" now partially preserved on top of "Pike's Aviator Greenhouse and Sweets".

The Douglas DC-6 is a piston-powered airliner and transport aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1946 to 1959. Originally intended as a military transport near the end of World War II, it was reworked after the war to compete with the Lockheed Constellation in the long-range transport market. More than 700 were built, and many still fly today in cargo, military, and wildfire control roles.

The DC-6 was known as the C-118 Liftmaster in United States Air Force service, and as the R6D in United States Navy service.
