A Shiny DC-3

This nice and shiny plane is the “Esther Mae.” It is a Douglas DC3 that was built in December, 1945 and is the only DC3-3D that is still in flying condition. This photo is from its appearance at the 2010 Experimental Aircraft Association Annual Fly-in.  It is my contribution to this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Shiny.

      Thanks. I took it from as low as of any angle as I could get in order to emphasize the size of the plane. I’m glad you liked the photo. While it looks big here you it is actually relatively small when you compare it to B-52 or the much bigger Lockheed C5-A (the one they use to transport tanks and troops around in:>. Even the commercial 747s and 777’s are much bigger (but not as spiffy!).


  3. Congrats on being featured. Very shiny. Very nice!
