Normally, cargo flights were overnight and as has been discussed on earlier posted photos, the aircraft were nicknamed Wombats due to their mainly nocturnal services and were decorated with a wombat image below the cockpit windows. For those who don’t know, a Wombat is an Australian marsupial, usually active at night.

They carried a lot of race horses. They had limited seating (including with 3 windows) in the forward cabin for the horse's handlers.
