Enjoy the new toys Ros and thanks for the shots.:thum:

 

What is the second one, looks like a DC-4 but the engines look like turbo props?

Thanks Brett

It's the Flight Replicas Canadair North Star / Argonaut (Merlin-engined version of the DC-4).

Cool beans Ros, thanks for the info and at least I was half right.:whis:  So many aircraft were made it's hard for this sieve-brained hack to remember them all.:(

The Argonaut was a good aircraft.  It was a BOAC one that brought back the then Princess Elizabeth, to the UK after her father King George VI had passed away, it was at that point she became our Queen.

Wow, just wow!

I'm just catching up after the show, and your C130 shot is awesome. I am sure your photography skills help to get these interesting views and angles.

Keep them coming Ros...

Ciao!

  Ahh that would be the AleniaAeronautica C-27J Spartan. You can clearly tell that it is not a C-130, even though it does share a very similar avionics suite, by the single turpo-prop on the wing.

That and the fact that it says Spartan on the fuselage :D
