Spent many a relaxed hour with a Chivas in one hand on those very fine, quiet and comfortable aircraft.

Typical Donald Douglas, built like the proverbial and somehow felt like it.

Every pilot I know who has flown (as distinct from operated :rolleyes) them loved them dearly.

A true pilots aircraft and a passengers delight, well in J anyway.

As for Erebus, lessons learnt culprits exposed and deepest sympathies to the crew and pax.

It might be safe to speculate now on what would have been the consequences if they had survived the accident and how prepared are we for this sort of recovery anywhere in this form of wilderness zillions of miles from anywhere.
