N37547 (cn 43257) A photo I purchased for my collection, this United DC-6 is seen at the gate in CLE circa late 1950s to early 1960. Also note the Capital Viscount, and United Convair back by the hangars. Most noteworthy is the Northwest Airlines Boeing B377 in the background. NW operated the B377 from CLE to MDW back in the day.

N37505 (cn 42870) The cockpit of United Mainliner Sequoia taken at CLE in 1955. Used by NACA (later to become NASA in 1958) to study ice formation on aircraft, the ice recorder switch can be seen just over the left portion of the yoke. Just a bit of difference in technology from the glass cockpits of todays airliners.

N37505 (cn 42870) A gorgeous shot of United DC-6 Mainliner Sequoia loading at gate 2 at CLE in 1955. Note the old control tower under the nose of the aircraft! This DC-6 was another aircraft used by NACA to test icing conditions while flying normal revenue trips with United Airlines. The small icing antenna is the inverted U loop on the upper part of the fuselage. Photo courtesy of the NASA Glenn Photo archives.

This long view down south juliet towards the south cargo ramp also shows an Air Tahoma Convair 240, a KeyCorp Learjet parked outside their hangar, and two UPS aircraft, a DC-8 and a 757.

Unknown (cn Unknown) Imagine my luck- catching two DC-6's at CLE in one evening, unfortunately I am not able to identify either of them! Shot in the late 1980's, this plane has what appears to be an ex-Air Force paint scheme. I have no other information on it, if anybody has any ideas, let me know!

N600UA (cn 44894) Heading for Air Services on a rainy day, this is the last DC-6 I've seen in active use to this day. Once "Mainliner Hawaii" with United Airlines and still flying in 2007, its registration works well with its new owners. Built 1956.
