Amazing view of this converted DC-3 "Polar 5" which replaces sistership "Polar 4"! With all the weird looking radars and research devices on the fuselage and wings. Canon 350D

Wow, never seen this one before. Are the landing gears still retractable with those skids in place?
A really cool looking DC-3 variant, if one was to ask me...

In response -- the gear only retracts up so far, and the skids and bottom half of the wheels remain exposed. Great shot!
