Dear readers of the DC-3/ Dakota Historical Society, there are a number of obvious changes to our site. After a long illness, is rather stunned to find the pages had taken on a very decidedly commercial tone.
When I started going through the links on the various images I was aghast at finding they led the pages I had never approved of and led to dead links. I have tried to rapidly change this back, so one could find what they’re looking for. I have only been at this for a few days so please bear with me.
The Society is honored to welcome my friend and fellow pilot and author, Captain Johnny Sadiq. A veteran pilot with over 19,000 hours of flight time in numerous types of aircraft. If you click on his picture below scroll to the bottom and you’ll find a breakdown of his total times. I put a link on to my own photo but only had time to put down aircraft total times. I’ll try and expand this at a later date.
In the future, we will maintain a quality store with quality items for those who are interested in aviation. We have stored in our computers, for instance, 14 different-flight operation manuals, maintenance manuals and parts manuals for this particular bird. Johnny has written a couple of very interesting books for the aviator, including one describing his flights in a version of the DC-3 in the Himalayas that left my hand sweating.
Thanks for reading this and hope you stay on board.
Click on the legs of the lovlies below and it will bring you to more unusual images. This perhaps will allow me more time to begin rebuilding the Society pages.
