Martin 404 N145S "Starliner Kansas City"
The Martin 404 was the ultimate version of the short haul Martin 202, 303, and 404 range. It was the first pressurized twin engine airliner. This example, one of only 103 404s built, was delivered to Eastern Airlines in February, 1952. It flew 13 years for Eastern, and in 1965 it went to Southern Airways. Southern discontinued 404 service around 1977, and this aircraft was stored. Then it was purchased for an ill fated startup in Florida. It never made it back into air service, and languished in Fort Lauderdale. AHM restored the Martin to mint flying condition. Unfortunately, it has been grounded for the last 2 years due to funding shortfalls. Go to the Airline History Museum website and do what you can to help get this back in the air.
