What a great plane the DC3 was.

Great shots of it, Paul.

Re: RAF Douglas DC3 "Dakota"

Paul, both good shots, and of course the second image I like better being more dynamic.Just took a peek at your Adobe powered website and liked the little I saw - very impressive.
Unfortunately your site is painfully slow loading images (possibly due to my own connection speed at this hour when the kids have just been let out of school).
I will try again later when there's less load on the towers. I will be ditching my WIX website when the premium falls due next May. I would not recommend anyone to go with that company.

Very nice. Next time you could try reducing the shutter speed to around 1/250th to blur the propellers, but then it's harder to get the plane that sharp!

Re: RAF Douglas DC3 "Dakota"

When I was in Brisbane in the 70's, the army engineers (Ozzi) told me that before they flew one of these they checked them for cracks in the wings. If they found a crack, they would drill either end of it to stop it spreading. So expect these Dakotas to be peppered with many small holes……….

Based on the Griffith's criteria...

With both engines 'out', the rate of turn needs to be severely limited.
