Since I found found information about the ferry flight I copied this info about the ferry tank from the history paragraph above

installed two 60 gal ferry fuel tanks (240 total) for ferry flt at 30% over gross CAR 8 (fuel duration 17 hrs)

The malta info was that 12/69 the aircraft route was Shannon (I assume Ireland) then Malta to Turkey (probably Ankara)

1626 miles from shannon to luqa, Malta 1009 to Ankara, turkey

I wonder which route they took across the atlantic

1) The southern route from St Johns to the Azores to Europe or Africa.

2) The middle – from Goose Bay, Newfoundland, to Narsarsuaq, the southern tip of Greenland to Iceland to Europe.
3) The northern route – from Iqaluit or further south in Labrador – through Kangerlussuaq, Greenland – to Iceland then to Europe.

I noticed on H-500 used a Boston - Torbay Route. it appears that 1416 ferry pilot also had the fuel range to make his choice.
