There was also a Kentucky Air Guard Hercules on the ramp. It had arrived about an hour before this photo was taken.

Cool perspective!

Our late 1950's/60's family outings included excursions to our Ft. Wayne airport, to view the coming and going DC-3's and even Connies. It was the age when one could go out on the tarmac next to the chain link and be very close to the action. The 2nd floor restaurant was quite good, and we'd enjoy dinner there with a table against the glass. On a good day the National Guard fighters would scream by. One day we witnessed a Sabre overshoot the runway and smash thru a small airfield red and white striped building, yikes!

A beautiful sight to see; A FULL POWER STOL take off without passengers on board.
Seems like it takes off in 50 feet.

South Florida Air Cargo still flies these everyday out of KOPF to the Bahamas.

I believe I was witness to the crash Dave Mursch mentioned.The Saber pulled up over the top of my house as the wings, engine, canopy and seat departed the aircraft. The pilot was later found in a field east of Tipp City, Ohio still strapped in to his seat. Shocking day for a 12 year old boy.

Great memories - flew one operated by United out of Muskegon, MI back in 1964.

My second commercial flight was on an Allegheny Airlines DC3 from Erie, PA to Newark Airport in 1956. Quite an exciting experience for a young boy!

United used to fly these into the Rochester, NY airport in the 60s. Unmistakable sound.

Concur about the paint scheme. It is a classic keeper. No need to change.

Oh neat! I worked on the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306B small size turbofan engine development in the late 90s in Plant 22 near Toronto's Pearson Airport (CYYZ). Was my first out of university engineering design job. So neat to see the engine on the good old 328JET!!! Thanks for the photo!

I have only seen four RTOs over the many years I've been at RNO. All four (this one, a Sun Country B737, an AA B757, and a Southwest B737) were declared while the jets were still at fairly low speed and in all four instances the jets stopped no more than 2/3rds of the way down the runways. Never any danger.

When they park this at PBIA (When Trump was president) it was way off to the side and surrounded by old school busses so you couldn't see it from the road.

Dave Seider is correct, they were both in town to speak at the NRA Convention. Both left within about an hour of each other if memory serves me correctly. I have post other shots from this sequence (which I like better) on this site. Regarding Philip Goldsby comment about the color variations, there could be a slight difference in color between two possibly because of paint fading? I am not sure, just throwing that out there as a possible explanation. One newer paint scheme than the other. I am not sure if AF1 (747) gets a more frequent repaint to keep it looking fresh than it would require if it were a pax bird, occuring mainly at a heavy D check interval. Don't know. Also, Trump has flown on the C-32 as AF1 on 2 or 3 occoasions that I have shot it. For whatever reason maybe the 747's were out of service??? or, perhaps Trump was going to go to a smaller type airport after leaving IND that could not handle a 747 due to its size? Thank You for all of the comments~!

I love to see pictures of this aircraft. It is so sexy and awesome looking. I wonder if they are still making it. I used to hear one fly over my house often, but not lately. A very distinctive sound for sure

Dennis - here is a link that may answer your question in more depth than Vinny's response, which is accurate.

https://www.flight-mechanic.com/landing-gear-types-landing-gear-arrangement/

Essentially, it's what was needed at the time since not every airstrip at the time of the design of the DC-3 was paved, as is commonplace nowadays. The "tail-dragger" design provided more stability in take-off and landing on uneven surfaces, since it pushed some of the center of gravity aft.

Pratt and Whitney Canada loves this airplane, because of it's high powerplant-to-airframe ratio :)

As a kid in the 1950's my balsa wood airplanes were modeled after the F86.

A favorite it was used in Magnum PI and flown by TC

Written on 22/01/2021 by handyandy

@Juan Zermeno It’s because one of the main reasons for acquiring VC-32A was because it would allow the US Air Force to have the ability to fly POTUS into locations that might not have the infrastructure to land widebody aircraft but are also to far from the closest airport that is able to cater to widebody aircraft for Marine One to reach. Prior to having this aircraft going to some of these locations were a headache for both the USAF and Secret Service because usually it meant they would have to travel vast distances by ground sometimes in places that weren't exactly the safest of locations.

Written on 22/01/2021 by ccunningham87

In answer to Dennis Stark's question. Number 1 it's a tail-dragger. Number 2 the main gear has to be high enough to keep the props a safe distance from the ground during take-off and landing.

Written on 22/01/2021 by Vinny Barbin

Colorado Air National Guard had a flight demonstration team using F-86's in the 1950's. Saw them perform at Wright-Patterson airshow about 1956. While doing a bomb burst maneuver, one failed to recover from the dive and crashed. I saw the canopy depart the cockpit but the pilot didn't eject. Later investigation revealed cause was a tool lodged in the control stick channel jamming the stick forward. The F-86 had one bad habit all pilots were briefed about. When ejecting, they had to bend forward as the canopy dished down as it departed. Investigators discovered the pilot involved had had problems with that issue in training. They believe the pilot was knocked unconscious by the canopy as it departed. The pilot was unable to complete the ejection sequence. Sad ending to a great airshow. PS, in those days it was common for airshows to have live ordinance demonstrations. I remember Mustangs shooting targets with live 50 Cal and other aircraft dropping small bombs on the same across the main runway at Lowrey AFB, Denver about 1952. ROKAF did live ammo demonstrations in the Han Gang River in 1966, using F-86's as front line fighters. You can imagine the controversy if any of that was done today.

I wonder why they chose the 757 and not the 767. The 767 is thicker which would allow for more elbow room.

Written on 22/01/2021 by Juan Zermeno

I always wondered why the DC-3s are not more level on the ground as are most other aircraft. It's like an uphill climb from the rear to the front. Does someone have a brief answer ? There must be a reason.

being an ex-diesel eight F/E, F/O & CA, i can relate very well to the -8, my good friend Doug Baker of NASA was the PF/E on this most exquisite pristine example of the verniable, robust dream-8 for decades.
