To me, it looks like a photoshop. The prpellor blades are too still, and I cannot see pilots.
Anthony Holding
Nice to see this type of aircraft in use flying , doing what it was built for Bravo,!
John Shearer
The crew sits aft of the forward set of windshields. Probably a very fast film or exposure.
Tim Segulin
Great shot of quite an interesting historic aircraft.

Bright day + digital camera (or medium speed film) + target at infinity => fast shutter speed -> static props.

Photoshop not needed!

I tend to agree with Tomer. N1837M "Hot Stuff"is listed by Wikipedia as being unairworthy in storage.
"44-78565 Hot Stuff – in storage by Everts Air Cargo in Fairbanks, Alaska."
Al Miller
Activity Log certainly indicates it's flying.

Well fellas, I can assure you that this aircraft is up and flying. It flies our of PAEN almost daily hauling fuel to remote Alaska villages. We just serviced it's twin about 15 min ago.

Great Photo

Wow, just watched a C46 leave Kenai (PAEN) less than a hour ago. Low takeoff, lots of beautiful sound as it flew by my RV-6 at the tie down.

Evert's has several of these, different, ones always at PAEN.

They fly fuel to the villages out north/west.

They open them up for people to check out the internal fuel tank and what the cockpit looks like. One of the main stars of the Kenai Air fair in early June.

Nice video of it taking off in Alaska. On YouTube

Colin, that's why we don't use Wikipedia. It's FULL of misinformation.
