I believe that is a DC10-40. Not many of them built.

Just watched this beauty do 8 practice runs at GJT today. I live on the flight path. I didn't know exactly what she was and a quick search didn't help. Just now I check my email and there it is! Great info. Thanks all.

JC, I understand the purpose/mission of the A-3 as a fleet logistics,VIP transport. ADM Zumwalt was the first CNO to convert a Skywarrior for his personal use. Mainly because the A3 has a tailhook,and he could drop in on fleet carriers unannounced. My confusion was because the photo description did not say whether it was a vintage photo of a military A3, or a photo of a vintage aircraft being used by civilians, current day.By the way, I served with VAK-208 for 3 years. I don't care to remember how many of those drogue chutes I re-packed. Thanks for your comments shipmate.

iffmode4: The VIP that was referenced was the Chief of Naval Operations. He would use
it to visit the various Naval installations. I worked on the tanker version of the A3 while I was in the Navy.. Check a3skywarrior.com for more info on the A3.

Back in the '90s I got to work the TACAMO project when they were upgrading a lot of the subsystems for the E6B. The hardest part was getting all the added clearances and I already had a TS/SCI. Some interesting stories regarding the trailing wire antenna.

I remember when the Alabama National Guard had these with the "cargo box" attached. Our unit had a all volunteer FTX on a weekend and we boarded and flew from Hamilton, Al to Birmingham and refueled and flew on to Ft. Rucker in South Alabama. It was a cold day in December and it was COLD in that box. Great memory though.

Looks like a real AAL DC-3 with Wright engines and sloping piece in front of the windshields. Also would have had the pax door on the starboard side. I remember working on and flying N400D back around 1970. It was built in 1936.

Beautiful airplane. I had a lot of encounters both as a USAF tower controller in Sacramento and later as an en route controller at Houston Center. At KMCC they would arrive in the morning and always depart at "oh dark thirty." I would often catch both, working the day shift and then the subsequent midnight (graveyard) shift. KMCC was surrounded by residential areas so noise was always an issue and you'd think this behemoth would rattle everyone's windows during REM sleep but no, those giant high-bypass turbofans are amazingly quiet, just a dull roar. At the Center I worked oceanic airspace for a while and these guys would go out over the Gulf and let out the VLF antenna from the tail cone like a fishing reel, what we called "trailing wire operations", we had to protect quite a distance below the aircraft, 15,000 feet if I recall, but they were always in a warning area so it wasn't an issue.
