That old girl is one of the unsung heroes of WW2, great photo!

Beautiful take-off shot, flaps and tail up, I can see it just about to lift off. Yup, the old C47s, Dakotas, DC3s, call 'em what you will, real workin' girls of the war and some are still going; Buffalo Airways in Yellowknife, Canada are still flying them, as are lots of airlines in South America and Africa. Great old planes.

RAF ever take them on?

This a/c was so over engineered that it is still flying safely 60-70 years later......

Hero of the BERLIN Air Lift & they still fly. ONE TOUGH BIRD.I had the chance to fly on one in about 1999. What great experience for a novice. It was Quite noisey.Bt the thrill was still there.
