Great prop blur on that shot Brian.

Slightly nose up almost nil for my taste, ditto for only 10° flaps.

Navy Herk, nuff said. Us old Nam trash haulers, would have been at 100% flaps,not degrees, and the aft end of the plane would have been parallel with the runway surface😀

"Us old Nam trash haulers, would have been at 100% flaps,not degrees..." True, but this bird probably doesn't have anyone shooting at it nor is worrying about loose PSP ripping the tires! ;) Frankly, I found the challenge in many of the "airports" in Nam much more fun than the concrete runways after that war... This aircraft is the replacement for the C-47 as the most useful and long-lived flying machine ever built!

Roger that, Jim. Gravel rattling of the bottom of the fuselage was quite a symphony too. That old girl could really take it, and still get us home. Most of the time.
