    Beautiful OHOS Jon!…We’ve got Betsy our first one at the entrance to CX…I’ve tried to convince CX to use it on the Hongkong to Macau run ( Silver Service ) for naustalga….They got it flying about 20 years ago..Then just parked it at the entrance..

    Yes...I never drove a Phase 4, but all the other equivalents from Holden and Ford I drove regularly when they were new.

    I understand there is no time on the airframe for DC-3s, is that true ?

    I drove a phase 4 and Monaro 327 GTS, thought they were armageddon at the time and the speedo increments were outrageous for the time with I think 20 mph increments ?

    I also had an R/T Charger E38, seemed quick to me then :confused:

    Yeah that’s correct JM…It’s not pressurized..They still fly them commercially in South America and Northern Canada..In South Africa they have re engined them with PT6 Turbines…

    So metal fatigue plays no part ?

    Seems strange because the F-111s were all timeframed for fatigue

    Because they are pressurized and fly around at the speed of sound JM… A seagull with a tailwind is faster than a DC3…:)

    But what if the DC3 has the same tailwind?? Slippery slope.

    There was a manual one in Oz no more than 2 years ago as I had considered it when I offloaded the 308....it definitely wasn't telephone numbers.
    I decided against it due to rarity for parts/servicing etc.

    It could have been OS, Goodwood for instance?
