Fuel Quantity

Recommended Posts

I've done my first overland flight today, (Glasgow to Coventry) and hence the first time I ever looked at the fuel capacity of this aircraft.

 

I noted that it can 'only' take 20000lbs of you'r finest Avgas! Now according to Wikipedia, DC6B could carry 5500USG, which is 33000lbs.

 

This version will take the 6 roughly 2400-2600NM based on the 1000 torquemeter HP chart, whilst Wiki 'advertises' with 4000NM range.

 

Is Wikipedia wrong?  this a feature? are there plans to make a long range version?

 

Thanks!

Damn...we forgot to consult wiki before putting in years of work on this? =P

 

Note the "up to" part. We modeled the 8 tank version. That's the 10 tank version.
