Douglas DC4 at North Weald
« on: March 12, 2017, 05:03:00 PM »
There used to be two and now there is only one.

She's a game old bird, a genuine WW2 veteran and participant in the Berlin airlift.

She is up for sale on this web site.  https://www.historicandclassicaircraftsales.com/skymaster

They have a facebook page running and I noticed some one with vulcan to the sky club as their user name had liked some comments.

Some nice pics on there of the aircraft over her long and varied carrer.  It would be nice if her long life did not end up as baked bean tins in an Eping supermarket.

And yes this is another Bee in my Bonnet (to go along with the Mosquito, the Shackleton, the Canberra, the Gannett, the Walrus, the Blenheim, the Hunters and Just Jane) perhaps if they all come off I'll have my own airshow!

Watch this space.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Hi Sam, please can I add the Bristol Beaufighter at Duxford to your virtual reality airshow?

You could, but that is not a project I have any involvement with.

I think there is a problem with engines for that project.

Duxford for some reason do not seem to want to talk to me.

Just makes me wish I was fifteen years younger and an AWFUL lot richer.  Such an opportunity for somebody with cash and a passion for gorgeous aircraft...
985 posts on last forum - so I get the \'hallowed 1000\' for just 15 on this one (yippee!)
