When you review the logbook entries from your father for June - August 1972 and it might be a stong possibility of him shooting this approach in "November-six", you have to rate it a five star photo. Also as a five year old taken for an evening ride with dad in 1970 from Hangar 6 at Washington National, N6 was my first experience with aviation. N6 was destroyed on take-off at Dubois Jefferson PA in 1975 by a flight crew not following proper proceedures and protocol, my father loved flying the aircraft from 1962 for the FAA and recieved the right control yoke from the wreckage from someone in the agency after its crash. I still have it. Thank you again Mr. Pettersen for posting this photo.

This FAA DC-3 was checking the ILS on runway 13L the day this photo was taken.
