Excellent Image of the Gooney Bird. When I was flying the saying was, “There is only one replacement for a DC-3 and that is another DC-3.” – Ted
Thanks Ted…I never managed to get a flight in one , although when I was a kid in the fifties, I lived quite near the Short Brothers and Harland factory in Belfast, and often used to go up the Hollywood hills and plane spot the runways. It was also a repair and storage depot for the RAF and Navel reserve and used to see an amazeing amount of aircraft to-ing and fro-ing and cocooned on the runways. I remember DC-3’s on rare occassions causing great excitement as the closest I got was building an Airfix mode of onel.LOL I always knew when an electrical storm was immenint.. they would send up a big black Canberra with a big odd shaped bulbus nose, they developed the rader systems and top secret stuff. I work there briefly while they built the big ‘Belfast’ transport planes for the RAF only ten made, and of course the SC-1 VTL.
There used to be a DC-3 parked at the Nut Tree Airport in Vacaville, CA. Now it is at the air museum at Travis AFB. It’s tail number was 4U, it was partially dismantelled and flown by helicopter to Travis from the Nut Tree. It seems, the helicopter that they decided to use, couldn’t pick up the plane because of the back wash on the wings. So, they took off the wings and then the helicopter could carry it the 12 miles it had to go. Bob :)
They were legendary… used for everything. ….my father had to jump out of them a few times during the war.
