This DC-6 arrived here on 4 December 2010, landing spectacularly on a small dirt strip nextdoor. Great clips of its arrival can be found on YouTube. It is ex ZS-XXX, reregd to ZS-MUL on 29 October 2010, shortly before this delivery flight. It's now in use as an eye-catcher, and photos can be taken from outside the fence, for those arriving after closing time, like us. It has the logo of its owner Drakensberg Truck Manufacturers on the fin. The aircraft's name dates back to the late 1950s, when this aircraft served with Canadian Pacific Airlines as CF-CZV, and was named "Empress of Suva".

This Halifax was based at RAF Tarrant Ruston during WWII for special ops missions. It took off on 24th April 1945 on a flight to resupply Norwegian resistance fighters. This drop was made successfully but she was hit by AA fire and forced to ditch into Lake Mjøsa. All crew members survived but their dingy did not inflate and they were forced to swim in the icy water to shore but, tragically, only the tail gunner made it to safety.

This is actually just a tail shot of this Expeditor as its main fuselage was out of shot to the left and wrapped in tarpaulin, hopefully, to be reassembled sometime for display. The fuselage sections behind right belong to Lockheed 18 Lodestar CF-CEC, parts of which were used in the restoration of Hudson FK466. Photographed in the storage compound at the National Air Force Museum of Canada.

The C-46 is associated with the CBI theatre of WWII, but in Europe the USAAF's 313th Troop Carrier Group received it in early 1945, and this particular aircraft took part and was damaged in an Operation Varsity paradrop at Wesel on 24 March 1945. It reached the Pacific too as it served in the JASDF after the war.
