Delivered new in 1938, the HB-IRO and most Swissair aircraft in the early 1940s had prominent white and red stripes on the fuselage and wings. It was a common practice during WWII to prevent a plane from Switzerland from being mistakenly shot down by one of the warring factions. In 1955, the aircraft was sold to Ozark Airlines in the United States where it flew decades later at air shows across the country as the N143D in Herpa colors.
