Curtiss C-46 "Commando"

Postby hasegawa » Sun Aug 13, 2017 1:01 am

For this one I have waiting for for a long time. Yes, she was always only the Nr. 2 after the Douglas C-47/C-53 and difficult to fly and and a maintenance nightmare. but... she was the biggest aircraft with two engines of it´s time, had a good range, was fast and can climb out a DC 3. The flights over from Assanm, India to Kunming over the Hump are meanwhile legendary and after the war it was not useless. The last aircraft, that left Saigon before the "Vietcong" in 1975 was there was an"Air America"-Transport with 152 people on board... flying from Saigon to Bangkok.
Today there are only a handful left, flying in Alaska and with the Commemorative Air Force.
