Thai Airways 52

 

Thai Airways

 

Thai Airways (TAC) was formed in 1951 with the merger of two airlines, Siamese Airways and Pacific Overseas Airlines. In 1952 TAC operated a mixture of aircraft including DC3s and DC4s. The following flights were most likely operated using the DC3 and DC4 fleet.

 

Unusually TAC kept afloat in part by trading aircraft bought from airlines switching to jet fleets, and then selling them on to other local airlines without ever operating them in TAC flights.

 

The flights below came from the October 52 Thai Airways timetable from www.timetableimages.com .
