Thats no DC-3 - thats the DC-2 that they are refurbishing for delivery to the Museum of Flight up here in Seattle!

I don't know if the rumors of that are true, something to do with hard landings that bent the planes beyond repair. Anyone have truth to that rumor?
|Quoting Fredplt (Reply 11):|
I can land at any weight I can takeoff at, kinda nice!

I just remembered turkey, forgot about it breaking somewhere else. Wasn't it at Incirlik for a month or two?

The problem with the whole sets of blocks like fighters is that many of them will be different and cost more to repair, hopefully that won't be a problem in the future.

Another had a Class A incident during a airdrop when a HMMWV got stuck in the door. That got fixed too, took a while.

What the hell where they trying to do push it out sideways?

It pulled the extraction package out of the plane but the platform was stuck in the rail system (which had never happened before).
|Quoting L-188 (Reply 28):|
I am actually surprised that doesn't happen more often. I hated to deal with military boards when we flew them. Unlike the civilian "cookie sheets" I am used to the military board have that series of tabs that will hand up on every latch if the board has any bend to it.
