The DC-4M2 North Star is Central's first major airliner. The newly re-formed carrier was only operating DC-2, DC-3/C-47 and Boeing 247 equipment when it restarted operations in 1945. Central managed to talk Douglas into allowing Canadair to sell DC-4M2 North Stars to itself, but Douglas got 65% of the profits from the sale in the end. North Stars began operations in July and August of 1947. The last North Star was retired from its original service in 1968 when Central pulled the entire southeast fleet out of the southern states due to bigotry and Flight 6. The final North Star in Central service was retired in 1971 when it was being used only in Africa and South America. #Air #Canadair #Central #CL2 #Cloudmaster #DC4 #DC4M #DC4M2 #DC6 #Douglas #Lines #N4012M #North #Star
