Wish I was there!!! 😀
It is an unusual plane, as far as i know, they were never made lik ethat, so it was adapted from the normal single seater
Really nice stuff!
Sorry to contradict you, but this two seater version is not a retrofit. This should be a T mark IX (T for Trainer) And a handful of these still fly around the world. You lucky, it’s a privilege to watch such a beauty in flight… Cheers, HC
No worries, I am not sure where i read about them being retros but it obviously did not include the T9. For a ‘mere’ $3000 you could get a flight in it. Tempting..
Only $3000? That’s a bargain! 😀
The mustang was $5000 so I guess you are right 😀
Where is all these great pictures taken?
Every year there is a big rememberance of the 1931 Earthquake in Napier (over 250 died), there are old cars, old planes, lots of people dress up, the main theme is Art Deco, because after the quake, the flatened buildings were rebuilt in the popular (at that time) Art Deco style. These were taken at the airport, a pleasant part of an afternoon was spent there. Sadly the DC3 was absent 😦
That must be really interesting and great to visit. Thanks for the explaination.
No worries 🙂
Listening to your clip of Mustang Sally as I browse your blog. Hope the young guy who played the lead singer is still working in the music industry. He made the film what it is.
It is a good film, available in bits on youtube in its entirety, and that boy can sure sing too..
Very smart, and I’m amazed these old flying machines still exist! I shall have to give my brother a link to this, he’s very into old planes, he’d enjoy it! 🙂
Cool, I doubt if a single component is original though.
