This year marks the 10 year anniversary for DC-6 ferry flight to Wallmansthal just north of Pretoria.

We hope to bring you a 10year anniversary special video on what has happened since the last flight and also what is planned for the next 10 years.
:D :D :D Watch this space. [-X [-X [-X

With the above in mind, here is the link to the video again of the spectacular landing.

Hope this is good news for more big old boys not chopped up but to be stored for the next generations.
Also perhaps a more operatable runway as the DC6 easily landed.
Please don't keep info for yourself, there is many old bold pilots dreaming of the aircraft they did operate.

Hi Johan
Unfortunately the runway is no more. I sold my Kitfox and had no use for the runway any more, also the power lines were put up again.

But there is exiting stuff going on at the museum were the dc6 is standing.

Hopefully dbeerp will have a video soon
