Photo Comment

Although reportedly some parts of the real G-AMSU were used in the preparation of this Dak for display, it was really G-AMPP which served Dan-Air between 1961 and 1971 after an RAF career. The aircraft was removed to France in 1991, then to the Netherlands in 2002. Finally it went to Berlin in 2005, to be used for the making of a film about the Airlift, to represent crashed Dakota KN491, which went down on 24 Jan 1949 in East Germany while approaching Lübeck-Blankensee. When filming was completed, the remains of the aircraft went to Olawa, Poland.
