Flying in a DC-3        





My first (and only) flight in a DC-3 (in over 41 years of flying...)


Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, October 21, 2012.


I was fortunate to being invited to the last but one flight by the F/O,
who was performing his final two just before retiring.
Unfortunately the weather was not very cooperative,
but for me nothing could spoil this day.

As the engines are started the rain begins to fall...
After the engines are warmed up we taxi out to R/W 04
