There was no name on the C-46 but the crews who flew the Hump called her the Betty G. The airplane was identified by a painting of a scantily clad female on the side of the nose. In 1944 the Betty G encountered severe turbulence and crashed into the side of a mountain---attempts to reach the site were futile. Rumors circulated that gold coins for Chiang Kai-shek's payroll were aboard the Betty G.
