CCNS-PL Airport Aircraft Martin 404.jpg


Provincetown Municipal Airport | Martin 4-0-4 Skyliner.

This pressurized, twin-engine craft, which had a maximum capacity of 40 passengers, was flown from the early 1950s through the early 1960s by Trans World Airlines as the Skyliner. (Eastern Air Lines called its 4-0-4s the Silver Falcons.) The Provincetown-Boston Airline began acquiring them in 1975, all from the original TWA fleet, via Piedmont and Southeast Airlines. It wound up with eight in all; six for revenue service and two for parts.
