Bringing the DC-6 out of the Hangar (LSZH - EDDK)

Recommended Posts

... after I didn't touch her for years. Once being my favourite plane, I later preferred the 727 and Tu-134. Would I still master her? Trying a short Zurich-Cologne hop, perhaps in preparation for more.

 

Btw, it's the wonderful freeware model by Tom Gibson et. al.

Unfortunately, this picture doesn't say how it sounds inside the cockpit at this moment

I was too busy managing approach and landing, so here are some impressions from parking.

It was slow, but funny. Will I make it to Alaska, where the DC-6's last "wild-living" relatives do their work?

These are some terrific shots of an old favorite of mine, Harald. You probably won't make it to Alaska in her. But then you could always say: Scotty, beam me up and take it from there  :wink:  :wink:

Very nice shots Harald!  When I saw the title I thought you were flying the PMDG DC-6 :lol:
