I think Dakota67 will love this pic ..... surely .....
Very much appeciated thank you. makes my old heart sing and recall my first hands-on of a C-47 at Hamilton, New Zealand in early '57 when a kid pilot of 16. Was in the right seat of the world's first Ag. aerial topdresser DC-3, converted by James Aviation. It was then carrying about 6.5 tons of superphosphate to spread, from about 80 feet, over hill country. Having flown only Tiger Moths, Magisters and Austers, it was absolutely fabulous. And, its pilot, Reg Plane, actually let me fly it out to the spreading area and part of the return to the aerodrome, where, this afternoon, I am going to my old home Waikato Aero Club where I shall enjoy a merrie foaming nutty-brown ale with the chap who taught me to fly; Ken Fenwick...now 91. What a wonderful journey it has been..........
Ahem! I was so overcome that I transposed the numbers. For 6.5 tons, read 5.6. Actually, it started with 6.0 ton but this was reduced as a result of testing with an accelerometer on board. The 'G' forces, combined with hill country turbulence, required a reduction. However, take-off weight was still up around 31,000 lbs at times. There was of course a jettison system which required the payload to be able te be reduced by 80% in five seconds.
