This picture was posted last week and is from a museum. Please idenify.
Looking at the side entrance door and the passenger windows that are covered
up, it looks like it was a converted vintage airliner.

Thanks to the original poster.

That was my first thought - well, second after I'd checked out the Convair
880. The C-135 being the militarised 707, the cockpit windows are
all wrong.

It looks too streamlined to be a propellor-powered plane, but as always, I'm
willing to be proven wrong.

Definetly not a Convair 880. The attached picture shows a longer nose and a
completely different window pattern. The original poster said that he took
the photo in the 40s area of the Hobby Navy Museum. The humped up area
above the windscreen really throws you off. That pattern is more indicative
of a DC6. The large nose wheel well also loos like a DC6. As far as I
know, aircraft of that era did not have a forward cabin entrance door. It
was usually aft of the wing.

Maybe a Navy R6D1 or C118? Check the attached picture. I am really
baffled.

After much study, this is most certainly a C118 Liftmaster or reasonable
facsimile........................

That's it, either the nose was modified, or the angle hides the length. The
windows, landing gear compartment and cargo door match. Even the pitot tube
on the starboard side matches. The hole in the top of the nose is where the
port side tube would be.
