I respectfully disagree with the "not a font" assessment. Here's an example photo showing more letters: http://wayback.archive.org/web/20070823021146/http://www.musante.dk/sasflyhis/dc-6_se-bdp_sasflyhis-29.jpg

Note especially the name of the plane on the nose - since every plane had a different name, logically the type style had to be designed before the SAS fleet reached its maximum size, so the complete alphabet had to exist first. Also, brochures and timetables from the '40s through the 1990s used the typeface extensively - a google search will bring up several examples from eBay and elsewhere. Just because a typeface design was (possibly) never cast in metal nor translated to a publicly available Postscript, Truetype, OpenType or other digital format, does not mean it's "not a font"!
