You never know when you will run across an ol' Doug.
Back in the mid-1990s - yea, last century - I was flying a mighty NAMC YS-11 freighter (how many know what a YS-11 is?) when I took this photo of a DC-3 on a foggy morning at the Tri-Cities Airport, TN.
N115SA is a C-47A-25-DK, delivered to the RAF back in 1944. I think when I took this image is was with Saber Cargo Airlines. Apparently is still exists, which is good.
Cheers All,

Here's one for all you Helo-Bubbas out there - especially if you happen to have flown the mighty Sikorsky H-3 Sea King.
This is the Sikorsky S-67 Blackhawk (yes, Blackhawk, but one word instead of two) - a gunship concept fielded back in the early 1970s. The entire dynamic system - engines, rotors, hydraulics, flight controls - was taken from the H-3. New fuselage, 28-foot stub wing, and lots and lots of bullets (upwards of 7,000 pounds worth) - cool. It was fast and fully aerobatic - cool, again!
First flight: 20 August 1970. The S-67 basically lost out to the Hughes AH-64. Pity.

Fly Safe,
Dave

Hey Folks,
A while back we posted a photo of a Boeing B-50, with comparisons to the B-29. We just got in a couple more images of the B-50. It's pretty clear the differences to the B-29.
This is a Boeing KB-50J - S/N 48-0088.
