Very interesting pix photon, often wondered at the thought of a "old and forgotten" thread showing these grand old ladies rotting away in some lonely corner of a hangar or airfield..

It's good to see the DC4 and the C160 under cover. Do you know which hanger they're in - looks like the ex SAA Historic Flight one
