The NAC DC6s are spinnerless and have a different cowling than ours its nice to see that up close.

Great shots Jungle of the DC6A.

I shot this with a Nikon D300 and a Nikon 70-300VR lens. Thanks for the kind comment. The "flyby" was just a normal takeoff witnessed from my usual spot along the runway.

If anyone cares here is a little history on this particular aircraft, it was sold by the Airforce for a mere $16,000 back in 1976:www.FlyingHigher.net - Douglas Aircraft
