@Ken Hardy Looks like this aircraft started out as OH-LFR with Finnair way back in 1969.

N910SS is a Citation, now C68A. This pic needs to be corrected.

I am a little older than the average A&P, actually a Charles Taylor Master Mechanic. I was a Mechanic at Delt's Hangar at Love Field in 1966 -68 and performed C Check on Delta's CV440, DC6 and DC7 as well as C-46 aircraft.

Thanks for the photo, recall the "Screen and Exhaust Check" very well !! Ah the P&W 3350 !!

Loved our Pigs, the Super Hornet is a wonderful aircraft, and I'm sure our crews love flying it but in some respects we still haven't replaced capabilities that F-111's provided. Notice the AGM-142 Popeye stand-off missile under port wing?

I flew the "A" model version of this, called a C-130D back in the early 1970's. We were home based at Elmendorf AFB in Alaske but usually had two and sometimes three birds and crews at Sondrestrom AB (now Kangerluusuaq) on a rotation basis. We were the sole link to the "outside" world for the personnel stationed at two DEW (Distant Early Warning) sites out on the Greenland Icecap (Dye II and Dye III also called Sob Story and Sea Bass)at elevations of approx 7600' msl and 8700' msl. I have 42 C-130 ski landings in my logbook - not many have those. Woo, hooo! Old geezer, Jim.

Anything wearing a Swastika that ends up in a ditch, is just fine with me.

Back in 1961ish, while in the US Naval Air Force and only still
in my late teens, I was given a chance to join a crew to fly on board a Naval DC-6 from NAS Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn to Biggs Airforce Base, El Paso Tx. During the flight, and after the captain learned I got my Private Pilots license a few years before joining the Navy, I was asked if I’d like to sit right seat for a while! Needles to say it was an amazing experience. Up to that time, I only piloted assorted high wing, 2 seaters!
It wasn’t long before I was given a chance to grab the yoke!!!
What I remember most, now 50+ years later, was flying a DC-6 couldn’t have been different from driving an Elephant! I had never flown anything where I couldn’t even see the wing… or had to wait for a responce from the controls!!!

agree; the Raven was an ECM a/c and had the equipment atop the vertical stabilizer -- plain as day

Written on 16/10/2021 by a mentor

would agree with you @Michael; the Widgeon is quite smaller

I worked on these back in the 60’s for Delta, use to taxi and warm the engines up before first flight of the day each morning on our layover. Easy to start, very smooth running 3350’s.

A Great job, and nice picture. On leaning out for cruise on a WC we used 10 percent lean, a lot of noise on TO

Thanks, Diana! It's an older livery for them if I'm not mistaken, but it sure pops.

Written on 16/10/2021 by Jason Reina

When nothing was integrated and good preplanning and mental arithmetic was needed to keep you 200 miles ahead of the a/c.

thank you David!

Dual suction venturies mounted starboard side. Sans engine driven vac pump. Nice shot of a real classic at KFFZ.

I started walking out to the wing tip one day and the slope was getting more down, uncomfortable feeling, went back to the centre. The Abbotsford Flying Club got an all access private tour one day. We went for a picnic later and the plane headed straight for the beach we were at. They spun the aircraft around to cool us down. Fun times.

@Diana, Serge, David, Bill - thanks so much!
@Ken - I'm honored to hear that, I appreciate it!
@Michael - that must have been quite an experience. It never fails to amaze me how these giants can curve through the skies so gracefully and smoothly.

A very hard-working bird bedded down for the night in Saint-Hubert. She has certainly
earned her rest!
Oh - nice sunset, too! ;)

And I'm not going to even PRETEND to pronounce "Kuujjuaq" or "Tasiujaq", much less
"Kangiqsualujjuaq". ;)

It's been a very long time since we've seen a Hawaiian fleetbird here. This one is a charter. Hopefully, within the next year, we will see regularly scheduled HAL service launched here.

Andrej, good observation. Might be piloted by someone other than the guy that has to pay for the overhaul.

This has been on the ground for over 2 years? Why?

I can almost see the long barrels sticking out from behind the trees - and missing!
Nice shot.

Looking at all 3 photos, that landing gear does not look like it is very heavy duty. Nice looking kit build, perhaps a bit heavier struts?

Looks much more like a G-111 Grumman Albatros.

I had a great time working with NWA at EHAM and KDTW back in 1997.
Still in touch with some of the people I worked with back then!

Worked on the A model at Mtn. Home AFB, Id. Miss those days.

Beautiful. Do we know if Delta is going to fly the airplane to airshows, etc?

Written on 15/10/2021 by Michael Carden

If it was an EF-111 it would have had the characteristic "football" on top of the tail that contained the receivers which were part of the ALQ-99 ECM system it shared with the US Navy EA-6B Prowler.

NWA had a bad reputation for negotiating unfairly. While that may be so, they treated me very well when I had an extended sick leave. I also wish they were still around. And the contracts I flew under worked well for me and my family.
