Brandon, have you visited this museum? They have a Mosquito and a Mustang among others.Looking for pics.


Yes, a few times over the years. The photos I took are in deep archival storage since Photobucket made their big improvement.

Hi John,
The number of flying DC-3s is decreasing. After comparing it with the details held by other DC-3 enthusiasts, the number is in the 170s.... and about one third with turboprops. After checking some details, the new list of registrations can be downloaded via "Ralph M. Pettersen's Propliner Information Exchange Website", check http://www.proplinerinfoexchange.com/1- ... ws.htm#top

I haven't had time to make changes to the DC-3 list yet, but I have updated the Spitfire list to now include TE392 in Australia, which made its first post-restoration flight early last week, and now MJ755, the Greek Spitfire, which just made its first post-restoration flight today at Biggin Hill in the UK.

The list for active C54/DC4 is missing Florida Air Transport?
N9015Q
N460WA
Are they still active or have they been retired?
Also apparently Sprayer N55CW is being readied for Ferry flight back to Canada, its supposed to leave this month.

I can't find anything on N9015Q flying again since the nosewheel collapse at New Smyrna in 2014. The most recent photos I have seen of it are from this past November, sitting in the grass at New Smyrna with concrete blocks tied to the landing gear.

With regard to N460WA, the latest I saw were photos of the aircraft sitting outside at the Castle Airport in California in 2018, looking weather beaten and with bird droppings all over the tail. I can't find anything to show that it has been flying recently.
