Martin 404 Freight Service? Does anyone know about this?

   Don Hargreaves from RDD sent me this picture of a Martin 404.  It says “Pacific Air Freighter” on the side.  Does anyone have any information about this?  What routes did it fly?  How long?

    As I recall, when they discontinued the Martin’s, someone in SFO decided that it would be a good idea to convert them into freighters. I think they ran them south of SFO, Like SBA, PRB, etc. I think the idea was given up after a month or two. I found this card in a second hand shop in the little town of Etna, near where I live in Callahan, CA. Have no idea how it ended up there
