Familiarisation flight


Recommended Posts

Taking Jankee's TEAL livery for a low level sortie from Whenuapai, Auckland's airport at the time.  The Mangere airport wasn't opened until 1965, in the DC-8 era.

Gear up:

Thanks guys.  Ceiling was around 1,500' (less in spots...), so I was stuck down there.  What else should one expect from Auckland summer weather!

 

Yes, it is the PMDG bird.  It was always going to end up in my hangar as I also have a soft spot for the old propliners.  No Constellation or Stratocruiser, but still good fun and had many more real world routes.  The livery is by one of the livery artists, Jankees.
