Exceptional photo! I spy a 2nd Boeing 247. With well over a dozen ground handlers and technicians in action, you can feel the dynamic. Thanks for sharing.

Excelent, just excelent photo, it also shows how change is the airport form then

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 7, 2010:
Excellent! Glad you clarified it is "a 247 w/ nose section open"; I was almost ready to say it was a Caproni jet! The quad-motor has square windows...are you sure it is a DC-4? Perhaps an early DC-6? -rsa 2010-05-07
