Someone jump out of the rear seat?

Written on 23/09/2017 by R0ME0YANKEE

In the 1960's flew these all over South America. Varig in Brazil, Aerolineas Argentinas in Argentina. Went to Iguazu from Sao Paulo several times. Once, the airport at one of the stops was closed as a gas truck had gotten stuck on the runway, so the pilot landed on a dirt road just outside of the airport. He made several turns over the falls as we got there. I would guess we made 25 to 30 flights on these old birds. Varig used to hand passengers a white cardboard box with lunch or dinner in it as you boarded. WOW, what fun. Good old days.

Frank, there are a lot of dusty boots who would agree with you.

Pretty sure the United tail is a Vickers Viscount. Horizontal stab is angled, flat on a Convair products.

There's something about this photo and others from this guy I just don't understand.

Fernando, please explain to me how all of your photos were shot at the same airport, and yet the surrounding landscape looks entirely different in so many of them?

Like these,

Wow that's rear shot. lucky to have that one

Shooting through a prop is simple. A cam rides on the crankshaft and only lets the gun fire when the prop is clear. 2 shots minimum for every revolution of the prop.

Note the nocturnal wombat below the cockpit side windows. The L188 crews,including a flight engineer, only ever flew at night in the 1980's, by which decade the AN Electra fleet had been converted to cargo configuration. Nightime airport curfews were not a problem with four whispering Allisons...

Wright Cyclones of 1100hp each. Later production DC3's had the Pratt and Whitney engines rated at 1200hp.

I spent many hours in the co pilot seat of this F-27, VH-FCA. She was only six years old when this shot was taken at SYD. Noticed the JAT DC10 Series 30 parked beyond the QF B747 at the international terminal on the western side of Rwy 16.

I was camping at pylon 6 when I saw her the first day with wing tanks.
Also saw her the second day [This pic] without the tanks, I never seen one so low.
Just another part of the best year I've ever had at The Reno Air Races, that Gold unlimited Race Was one for the ages!
Sorry Strevo But WOW what a race.
Can't wait for next year.

My uncle had one of these early in his flying career; I flew in it a couple of times as a kid. I still remember that flight and I was eight years old I think. Wow, didn't expect to see one on here! Another great shot.

I was privileged to fly in some of the last Daks the Canadian Forces used at Cold Lake in the early seventies: loud, noisy, and at the time I didn't appreciate their history and how versatile and airplane they are. It's wonderful so many of them are still in the air and being used commercially and not merely polished showpieces like so many of their contemporaries are now. Lovely shot of the UofO's Dakota, thanks very much, Andrew.

It's not a Goose. It's a Widgeon. It doesn't have turbines, it has Continental IO-470 Piston engines.

Is that a United 440 in the background?

The hump is part of the electronics functions on board.

This was an ill desgined aircraft, of 163 built 53 crashed. It could not compete with the safety and much better economical operation of the DC-3.

Now THIS is a great candidate for a turbine conversion~!

Written on 22/09/2017 by alan mistrater

Somebody spent the $$$,$$$,$$$,$$$,$$$,$$$ to convert a 1946 Goose to turbines? OMG Never ceases to amaze me.
Anyone got a good guess on what that costs??

Cool, a secret government plane, in a secret government location, painted with secret stealth paint so we can't even see it.

Why does the leftmost engine (right in the picture) look bigger than the others?
