Of its DC-4 “Skymaster”, the US-American airplane manufacturer Douglas developed a stretched and pressurized example and called it DC-6. The military version received the name C-54, however a further airplane with the name C-118 was developed from the civilian DC-6, largely because the Air Force demanded a separate designation for its transports for important politicians. The original of this model with the registration 6-505 and the name “The Independence” was the first presidential airplane with own livery. It was at the former US president Harry S. Truman’s command.
