DC-4 Getting Exciting Polish And Buff

Post by Aharon »

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting exciting recreation of emergency Christmas airlift supply flight from CYHY Hay River/Merlyn Carter Airport located 1.7 miles north of Hay River, Northwest Territories, Canada to CYZF Yellowknife Airport located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada using Flight Replicas R5D (C-54G) featuring well polished/buffed masterpiece work painted and polished exclusively by repainter named Hartmut Hekmann who is the official repainter for Virtual Aircraft Restoration Facebook group owned and operated by Hartmut Hekmann and Tobias Krause.

Arriving at the airport to get ready for pre-flight inspection of the plane before boarding my captain seat in cockpit

Image

look how well polished and buff the plane is in time for Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year service!

Image

Image

Inspecting engine

Image

Inspecting another engine while marveling how well polished the engine covers and mufflers are!!

Image

Time for right side inspection

Image

Inspecting right engines (dig that metallic polish!)

Image

Image

Inspecting the tail

Image

Inspecting newly installed tires and landing gear

Image

Forgot to inspect front wheel so went back to left side to inspect front wheel

Image

Pre-flight inspection of the plane is completed and now time to sit on my captain seat and check all gauges to be sure they are kosher and correct

Image

Starting pushback!!

Image

Continuing pushback

Image

Finished with pushback and time to start engines!!

Image

Engines started which resulted into spewing MASSIVE engine start smoke to excite all airport spotting photographers causing them to wet their pants

Image

All engines started and ready for taxi!!

Image

Checking left engines to be sure they are okay and not overheated (you think they would get overheated in -20 degree weather)

Image

leaving passenger apron to taxi to short of runway 32

Image

Entering into runway 32 to taxi more and backtrack

Image

Backtracking!!

Image

Airborne after take off on climb to 5,000 ft for short hop across Great Slave lake to the destination

Image

Cockpit gauges showing progress of the climb

Image

Now reaching 5,000 ft to start cruising

Image

Image

Engines working hard to carry 20,000 lb load of emergency Christmas supplies

Image

Dig polish shine!

Image

Engines still working hard

Image

Cockpit gauges showing progress of cruising

Image

Crossing Mackenzie Bison Sanctuary

Image

Weather is getting so cold that condensation is starting to show from engines!!!! Very exciting!

Image

look at condensation behind engines!!

Image

Image

On final approach to runway 33

Image

Seconds before touchdown

Image

TOUCHDOWN!!

Image

Braking down!!

Image

Making smooth exit from the runway to cargo apron

Image

Image

Still taxiing to cargo

Image

More taxi

Image

Arriving at cargo stand

Image

Time to power down and turn off engines

Image

Engines are off!

Image

Thank you for viewing my screenshot and stay tuned for next exciting flight. And I apologize to all of you for not making enough screenshot flight reports. I have 34,000 thousand screenshots waiting for me to edit, research, do explanations, and of course publish!!
