I found this slide somewhere in my archive. I don't know from who I got it but I didn't made this stunning shot. The photograph seems be made on a sunny dat at Lydd airport somewhere in the 1960's.
G-AMWW is a C—47B-30-DK and build for the Royal Air Force first months of '45. She was delivered to the RAF as KN492 in April 1945 and was struck off charge in February 1950. When her military career was over, her civilian life started as G-AMWW Lancashire Aircraft Corp. Ltd. After five years she was sold to Skyways for which she worked for more than 15 years. After retirement from her career with Skyways she saw 11 years of service with Airfreight Ltd.. In 1981 she changed hands and Pan Universal Aircraft Service became the owner. In 1983 she was export to the U.S. and B Airways did operate her for nine years before she was sold to International Airline Support Group Inc. In 2004 she was enlisted again in the military when Royal Thai Air Force registered her '46159', this time as a Turbo-Dak.
Another one from Don Douglas. Originally this DC-3 has been manufactured in 1943 at the Oklahoma City plant as a C-47B-230-DK and wore the uniform of the RAF with serial KN250. After the war she flew in the UK with operators as; Transair, British Midland, South West and Skyways Cargo, registrated as G-APBC. With the latter operator she flew every morning newpapers from Lydd to Amsterdam-Schiphol. I have good memories of her as she overflew my parents house (near Schiphol) at low level regulary. In 1988 she was imported into the U.S. and started working for Missionary Flights as N300MF. In 2012 she was sold as N271SE to Alen Enterprise and operated from Opa Locka, Florida by Florida Air Transport eversince. She still is operating to the Bahamas islands on a regular basis.
