A wonderful landing set of shots here into an exciting and great looking airport ikbenik, and that DC-2 looks so right on that final right before touchdown, like she is not a plane from another time at all. :)

Nice shots! Who made that aircraft? Looks like something I could add to my hangar.

 

The Douglas DC-2 was build in 1933. Actual only 5 pieces remains and only one is still flyable, original the US-Reg. NC39165 became in 1999 the 'Uyver-2' under

a Dutch registration PH-AJU. The first(and simular) 'Uiver' made the London-Melbourne in 1934, a flying distance of 19877 Km in a time of 90 hours 13 minutes.

This 'Uiver' was missing in 1934 on Dec.20th in a flight from The Netherlands to  the city of Batavia(now Jakarta) in Indonesia, it was found crashed in the Lybian desert.

 

The simulator-model is made for FSX by 'the Uiver-Team X' but well flyable in P3Dv4 with exception of working gauges in the virtual cockpit. The exteriour is sublime.

The hereby used Austria-livery is only applied to match the country of the scenery. I have the DC-2 installed with 38 different liveries including the army-variant 'C-32'.

 

Best regards,

  Johnny

We have three in Australia, all static and in various states of repair/disrepair!

Great pics mate, and a very tricky place to land even in good weather.
