Man, how I wished I had a time machine and could go back to those days. While I've been fortunate enough to have traveled on numerous 747s, more specifically the 200 and 400 series, I was never booked on an SP. What a great aircraft.

Initially I thought this airplane was a B777, but looking closely and, specially due to the engine size, I figured out it had to be a A330. The engines seem small for the aircraft size. Good picture!

Greg, Thank you so much for the link to your pictures. I had forgotten Mohawk's colour scheme and also how many British and French aircraft there were in the US in the 1960s - Viscount, BAC 111, Caravelle and even Nord 262! My first flight at age 16 was on a BEA Viscount from LHR to Paris Le Bourget in 1959.

Wow! A corporate configured Viscount, complete with "long range" slipper tanks fitted. The total fuel flow in cruise would have been around 3000 pounds per hour, with the four RR Darts propelling her at approx 260 knots TAS. Huge cabin for a Biz Liner..a great shot!

Thanks Gary! You know as a kid growing up in SYD in the late 1960's I often saw (always) B & W photos in aviation magazines of Mohawk aircraft, but I never guessed that their livery incorporated Gold!...They sure looked fantastic! It wasn't until 1982 that I got a job flying F-27s. Thanks for showing me what I missed!

The PA system was difficult to hear but as we were walking in the pits area I thought I heard the announcer comment about a top secret "visitor" making a "brief appearance" in the next few moments. To me, that meant a fly-by so we hurried to a location adjacent to the north staging area. We got there just in time to see this Dragon Lady coming in low from the south. As she passed the grandstand she rotated skyward and went up like a dark thin rocket. And then she was gone. A lady standing nearby said, "It's gone. It just disappeared. I can't see it." The man next to her replied, "That's the idea." (grin)

Whiskey 7
C-47 Dakota

This aircraft lead the second wave of the invasion of D-Day and completed her return to Normandy mission in France. This C-47 Dakota also served with the 12th Air Force in the Mediterranean Theater, the 9th Air Force in England, and transported paratroopers for the 82nd Airborne Division — withstanding flak throughout all her missions.

That picture brings back memories. I worked out of CMH during 1971-1975, at Lane Aviation. Part of my work was to fueling Allegheny Airlines, on both BAC-111's, DC-9's and Convair 580's. More than likely, I have fueled that aircraft. It was always time consuming to fuel them. We were required to pop the cap on top of the wing on each tank. Then we would refuel single point. The reason was that a vent valve did not work properly and wing damage was incurred. Great picture.

Guy Rou , je comprend que tu aies frémi, ça doit étre une sacrée expérience. Je ne l'ai vu à l'oeuvre que pendant des meetings où j'étais Directeur des vols...impressionnant. J'ai lu cette semaine dans le Journal l'Alsace qu'il y a un petit agriculteur qui qui vole aussi comme ça. C'est merveilleux.
