Photo Comment

In 2006, when this photo was taken, there were only very few flyable Curtiss Commandos left in the world, and this was one of them. Dumbo joined the Everts fleet in 1976, and despite being more than 70 years old (delivered to the USAAF in February 1945 as 43-47201), this former C-46R demonstrator still saw frequent use by 2016.

This photo was added on 11 August 2017, and has since been viewed 273 times.
