National Airlines' N921R

Murray Aviation (dba National Airlines) had N921R (c/n 46145), a DC-8-63F, in town from ONT, as MUA921. It parked at Hardstand 5 during its stay here.

This aircraft was chartered by Pacific Air Cargo to fly tsunami relief supplies to American Samoa. In addition to donated items, Pacific Air Cargo also transported items sent by Hawaii residents to family members in American Samoa free of charge.
