I had the chance to spend some time near HAF's C-47, s/n KK156. This was the last flying HAF C-47, meticulously maintained, til its last flight that took place sometime around 2010, or even before...
Since then, it resides in 114CW, Tanagra, my Base, slowly deteriorating in its original, with some "not that original" repairs being done, in order to make her "look" less derelict...
I have spend quite some time around this beauty, then, yesterday, upon a leisure visit to the Base, I thought: "why not doing a walkaround pic coverage?".
So here it is!
It is amazing how customized a C-47 can get, even at its outside! Just check the "improvised" drains at the bottom of the front fuselage.
Anyway, these pics are for you to admire this old lady, up, close and personal; they might even prove useful to potential C-47 builders, but please note that C-47s sported quite a few variations in external "details", let alone the fact that "custom improvisations" could be found...
If you want to build KK156 at its final years, just "copy" everything!
If in need for extra pics or any further info, please let me know.
