DC-6 Location(s)

Hi All,

I'm trying to track down a couple of DC-6s - namely "G-APSA" and "V5-NCG" - I can't seem to find any trace of either of them.. I'm not located near either aircraft so can't nip to the airport to take a look.

G-APSA was stored at Coventry but I understood it was planned to scrap it? Not heard anything since so can anyone confirm or deny if it's still in existence (and one piece?)

V5-NCG was owned by Chris Schutte in Namibia (Namibia Commercial Aviation) - after his death, it was up for sale for some time but I saw an article that the aircraft was being flown to the US to be restored (possibly to airshow condition?) It was stored at Eros for a number of years, it may still be there, it hasn't been confirmed.

Working with others on a (potential) DC-6 project so trying to locate all the current airworthy, or near airworthy airframes at the moment.

Much appreciation for any help in advance,

James
