Wow!

Great photo of an interesting looking aircraft.

Powered by three 180hp Lycoming engines. The Drover was originally equipped with 145hp Gipsy engines but she proved to be underpowered. The Lycomings also came equipped with feathering props which meant she could stay airborne fully loaded on two engines.

Looks like a character from the Disney movie "Planes"...can't read its name, but maybe should be called "Teddy Trimotor"..
