I can feel an Anorak moment coming on.

The Mallard C/n J35 N611Ds was first on the register as PK-AKD to Asiatic Petroleum Corp. New York, for use by Royal Dutch Shell in Indonesia on the 3rd of November 1948. It was delivered on the 7th of August 1948 to Batavia (Jakarta).
It subsequently flew with the Indonesian Water and Air Police. Exported back to the States in '76. It then was the owned and operated by various owners in Miami, Alaska, and the Bahamas. It even had a stint with a Hotel in Palau in the Pacific.

Quite a girl, amazing history.

Our techos advise this thread ".....is up to 500+ pages, and currently experiencing some page count inaccuracy issues......".

Indeed, clicking on the "Last Page" link from the Forum home page mostly takes one to the second last page.

10,323 posts in 514 pages and the time has come to start a new thread.

The new thread is HERE.

I will close this thread this evening, after the wake!

I think it should get a sticky to keep it side by side with the new one, what you say?

I'll leave it stickied for awhile but there is a link to and from the new thread.

We don't need a plethora of stickied thread at the top of the forum.

Question

Shame we can't go through the thread and now simply 'archive' all the photos on it in one continuous thread without all the intersecting comments and just have the piccies. Or can we?

There's not a lot of point in archiving the posts really because many of them use photobucket and the accounts expire or people change ISP's and their photos are no longer valid. Unfortunately the thread has a limited lifetime It's been great though and thanks everyone for your contributions

Does "close the thread" mean just lock it so there are no new posts, or remove it from the server. If it is the former, the pictures will still be accessible, and posts can always be linked to in the new thread.

Keg, that would take a Mod until next Christmas moving only the posts with photos to the new thread........

No, it will not be removed, only unstuck and probably locked. But there is a link to access the old thread in my first post above.

There has been some notably long running treads on PPRuNe Dunnunda, but I think this is the largest by posts and views. The long running threads include:

Started 17 November 2000: http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-general-a...er-merged.html

Started 18 November 2004: http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-general-a...g-tok-tok.html

Started 20 February 2005: http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-reporting...g-forever.html

Started 14 August 2006: http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-general-a...-dunnunda.html

And some of those threads have certainly brought interest to a Mod's life!

(And been made even more interesting by a few posts by Mods in their non Mod capacity! )

Maybe rename both threads, so that people are aware that there are 2 threads.

It might be inane, but some nights, when i truly want to relax, i start clicking through.

Maybe as a suggestion..
The home of photos in dunnanda, Chapter 1 and chapter 2. that way people can go searching when it gets unstickied.

cheers
