This aircraft last flew when it arrived at Swartkop in 2000 where it's been languishing since. It has been brought back to life over the past year for its final short flight to the new owner's farm outside of Pretoria. It flew out of Swartkop registered ZS-MUL "Empress of Suva", although without the registration marked on the aircraft. It successfully landed on a dirt runway on the farm. What a magnificent machine ! Go to http://www.avcom.co.za/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=41521&start=150#p825471 for a video of the landing or www.dc-6.co.za for a history of this aircraft.
