Photographed at the Gothenburg Air Show on 8 June 2013. Built in 1944 at the Douglas Long Beach factory as 3406. Delivered to the USAF and transferred in 1945 to the Norwegian Air Force. Transferred to Det Norske Flyselskab in 1946 (which later became part of SAS) and given the name "Terje Viking". The Danish Air Force bought it in 1953, registered it with the military serial K-682 and flew it for 29 years. The last RDAF flight was on 30 July 1982. Now it is owned and flown by the "Foreningen for Flyvende Museumfly" association. See picture #3864 for a more detailed history of this aircraft.
