  1. This DC-2K was published on web page devoted to John Medland by Mike Medland http://www.rafcommands.com/gallery/john-medland-service-in-raf-kohat/ it is said, that photo was taken in Kohat. Here http://www.rafcommands.com/galleries/SEAC/Mike-Medland/Douglas-DC-2-DG4xx-Kohat-Hangar are two more takes, one on ethe clear difference between yellow on roundel and bottom colour is obvious. Unfortunatelyy all three shots do not allow to read complete serial... Regards J-W

    North American O-47

    In a link I gave in my previous input there is a couple of info about WWII service of O-47: "O-47s did provide wartime service flying antisubmarine patrols along the US Atlantic coastline, being target tugs, serving in training and communication duties, and in general utility work. In January 1942, ten O-47s and their aircrews were placed aboard ships for transport to Singapore. They were to conduct coastal patrol and reconnaissance over the Malay Peninsula. Singapore fell before the aircraft arrived, and they were diverted to Australia where they spent the rest of the war. Other O-47s flew from bases in the Panama Canal Zone. I" So also the Australia's ten are among those suspected to have tropic scene in photo, isn't? J-W
  3. Regarding high demarcation line for transport machines - what colour has this DC 2? If the outer part of roundel i yellow (?) the bottom is not yellow... Cheers J-W
  4. Great surprise! Looks that it will be full glazing fuselage. I am very glad that I was not fast with buing Sparrow... J-W
  5. Very nice Spit and great that you recall Jan Zumbach. He was a fameous Polish fighter pilot during WWII and general - a character. After WWII he was still active pilot as soldier of fortune in two African wars (flying A 26 for instance) , finally was murdered in Paris... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Zumbach Regards J-W

    North American O-47

    A bit off topic - but still about O-47. Have you seen this interesting set of photos here: https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/north-american-o-47.42542/ There is nice drawing about the inside on page 2. I am surprised for photos with late style insignia like here BTW - where this photo could be taken? The plants on hills look a bit tropial. As here also On contrary - below the environment looks for Alaska Here is another interesting set...: http://aviation.hawaii.gov/airfields-airports/oahu/bellows-field/photos-of-bellows-field/ Regards J-W
  9. Hi, Since I already did my Gamecock the most probable as my input remains: Belgian Avro 504 N (scrach conversion from 504 K), DH 9 (scratch conversion from 9A - or rather Polikarpov R1) and Spanish Vildebeest. Regards J-W
