reference to the file on N2701A shows it quoted as FD879, 44-77237 and 33569.  As MSN 33569/44-77237 
was broken up for spares as G-AMZA in 1953, it seems likely that N2701A was FD879, last recorded as 
FLC Nov 27, 1947 Mauripur. Almost certainly it went to the Pakistan AF - one of four fuselages sold by 
them to Lee Mansdorf via D W Connor - and later to become N42F and CF-IKD. It looks as if an identity 
was needed for the fuselage, and one was chosen at random
