Very Nice!
Alan Brown
Both photos are great! Black and white for history, and color for detail accent.
Thank you for your time and effort.

Best aircraft along with Concorde to ever take to the skies.

Nice.

Great picture of a beautiful a/c.

I have a question about the setting for this photo. It seems the gear is slightly retracted, either going up or coming down. If it's going up, the angle of the plane seems too flat to be in a take-off and if it's on approach, it seems to be to low to be engaging the gear at that level, which appears to be below the tree line judging from the background.

The photo shows the normal position of the landing gear on a DC-3 when retracted. It sticks out from the wing a little bit.
Glen Nardin
This is the DC-3 conversion for WWII, the Douglas C-47 Skytrain. Pelican006 is correct and you can see the original at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_C-47_Skytrain#/media/File:Two_USAAF_C-47A_Skytrains.jpg

The retracted landing gear is, by designers' intent, supposed to stick out a bit as seen in this photo. The gear retracted to improve aerodynamics (reduced drag) but if you look closely, the bottoms of the tires are lower than everything else except the props. This was intentional - if the crew was unable to lower one or both main gear, they could land with the gear up and only cause damage to the props and engines if the props were turning. This thing was designed with toughness in mind!
Peter Maas
one of the best ever build.

Great shot!

Mice photo of a great A/C. Although I've been in faster, more comfortable A/C, it ALWAYS got us where we were going. If memory serves there was never a "crash" attributed to a C-47 air frame failure. Solid, sturdy & reliable. My squadron had one (we called it the Triple Nickle because the tail number ended in 555) we used to go places and do things because we had the only rated officers on base ... .

Simply wonderful. Keep it flying !!
Bill Butler
What I see is a magnificent low pass. They have installed a very precise radar altimeter, or that pilot is better than good!

Why wouldn't designers cant wind screen glass more dramatically, decrease drag?
Mark Harris
Flaps up, wheels up - obviously a (very) low pass, and it's the C47 version of the DC3 (cargo doors clearly visible) also known (in the UK) as the Douglas Dakota. Nice photo - congrats!
Peter Melling
The black and white stripes are also significant, as this would normally indicate this aircraft was flown during the battle of Briton
Christopher Palmer
Not the Battle of Britain. Those are "invasion stripes" for D-Day.

Christopher Palmer has "nailed" it... WWII Allied a/c had black and white stripe recognition markings applied for the D-Day invasion!
