What took you so long?

Following R engine change at Kunming, XUX arrived at its final destination Guilin, a 3 hour leg. It will be disassembled and towed to the Flying Tiger Heritage Park about 10 kms away.

Last take off, Kunming

Spent a lot of playing inside this as kid when it was at Berwick!. It was saved from the scrapper by my grandfather. Good to see it preserved. I guess they are not going to keep it flying though are they?

I imagine I would have worked on this aircraft in my time with MMA.
I think there were 7 DC3/C47 in the fleet back then.
I was licensed on the PW R1830. Did my share of cylinder changes.

Did a lot of work on this aircraft as an apprentice at MMA and then on it in Papua New Guinea as a LAME.
