Aviation Photo #0440901 Douglas C-47 Skytrain (DC-3) - Untitled (TOL-AIR)

Maho Beach on a cloudy and rainy day isn't very popular, but for those who wait the rewards come. This DC-3, manufactured in 1942, is 61 years old and still working hard. Obviously the pilot trusts her to make such a low approach scaring Paul, my brother-in-law (permission granted), enough to cause him to duck out of fear he would be struck by one of the props.

I totally agree with the person below me... This is a very special shot!!! Fact that the sun isnt shining doesn't make this bird ugly or whatever... Still a nice backgound and an icon of aviation!

Good focus, tells a great story and the DC-3 is loved by everyone. Hey, if the heavy jets can show off at St. Mar then so can a sweet old DC-3!
