Gentleman who used to live next door to my late Father flew C-46s over "The Hump" in WWII.

He had his Nationalist Chinese "Blood Chit" framed in a very nice shadow box along with some photos of him from the war years.

Nice shot of a classic. Tinker Belle was at Shaw Air Expo on 5-6 May and I was able to talk to the pilot. She's a 1944 model, grosses out at about 50,000 lbs fully loaded. Capable of hauling about 13,000 lbs of cargo. Tink has eleven camels painted on her nose, each one signifying one trip over the "Hump". My Dad flew this type and Gooney Birds over the Hump during WWII. He said the C-46 was nice to fly but was "...a ground-looping SOB." Tink's pilot told me the rudder becomes ineffective at low speeds and can cause the ground loops. Thanks for the post!

Looks like a DC3 on steroids!

Good shots.
Our cinematographer flew the hump, too. He said that they could get wind gusts too strong for the overloaded birds to fly, which is why they called it "The Aluminum Trail" because of the scrap aluminum on the mountains.

^^ Shaw tried something different this year and hosted a pre-show photo tour on the Friday morning before the show. No crowds at all and we had free run of the ramp (well, relatively free anyway). I was a little surprised only 5 or 6 photogs showed up.

A nice capture and a new one to me. Particularly like the take-off pan shot.
