I flew on first dc-4 in dec. 63. It was an usaf aerovac from brendisi italy to frankfurt in germany. we hit bad weather and had to attempy a landing on the foam at frankfurt bceause the front landing gear would not deploy. as we were decending to the runway the gear dropped but did not lock into place. we landed on the main landing gear and set it down on the front gear as we stopped. i remember someone ran out and tightened to gear into place and we taxied into a parking bay non the worse for wear. this photo was taken in august 64 i believe so it could well have been the aircraft i had flown on.
