Take a look at this site, and make sure your speakers are turned up. The sound alone'll make you misty eyed.www.douglasdc3.com/

Blimey! Nearly blew me speakers up...! I'll probably still be shouting in the pub tonight!

Thanks PB!

Heh, heh sorry treadigraph. Was pretty well worth it though, wasn't it? :D

Thanks Pigboat, even found a photo of one I'd flown.

Oh yes!

In fact I'm just toying with the idea of waking the neighbours up!

The rumble and smell of two Pratt & Whitney Radials. Bliss. Great site!

Excellent PB

Took me back 12 or so years to when I was a regular pax in a venerable old Dac in RSA. Loooooved the sound of them radials.

Capt. x-wind, haven't found one I've flown yet, but it's still a small world nonetheless. In Jack Lamb's story about the DC-3 ferry from Kabaul to Thompson MB, he mentions the Canadian ICAO rep in Kabaul. I used to work for that guy, and attended high school with his daughter. :)

P/Boat, I flew both the P&W Twin Row Wasp & the Wright Cyclone
versions. Much preferred the Pratt & Whitney.
