To a large extent, C 54/DC 4's have outlasted newer Douglass equipment. Mostly about the expense of operating the big radials. The The P&W R 2000 certainly is cheaper to operate than R 2800/ R 3350 engines.
My supervisor at Areo Union Corporation would have liked to put R 1830's on our fleet of C 54's to cut expenses. He couldn' get an STC.

What is the emblem below the pilot's window? It looks to be from an old US Navy command organization.
