YAY!!!  I used to work for a guy who acutally had a Safire on order (luckly for him he sold his place off ::sweat::) and he showed me that same picture of the 3 views of a Foxjet ::thinking:: that's when it came back to me what it was!!!  He REALLY liked VLJ's so i have to thank him for that one  ;)

"Dumbo"  was the C-46 that I climbed into.   The DC-6 was one of the un-named ones.   In fact, I think I saw that bird in Galena today.

Here's another bird I see on a regular basis.   Phil (tundra flier) can't comment as this aircraft is also based in Fairbanks.

I almost used that picture but decided to use one that wasn't from airliners.net.


There is actually more than one Carvair in Goldfinger, you can see the tails of a few others.


The information about the last Carvair being an Ansett machine may not be correct from what I gather.

Airliners.net has pictures that are supposedly of the final carvair, a BAF (British Air Ferries) unit, being scrapped.   However, the 3rd Ansett unit is still supposed to be in South America. 

I've seen pictures of a Carvair in South America being readied for flight, I don't know if it is that machine or not.    I've seen 3 different Carvairs in person.    A company in Georgia where I'm from had two of them (only one was actually kept airworthy), but the flying one crashed on takeoff around 1991 or so.   They fixed up the other one and operated it for about 10 years and just recently sold it.  I heard on the airport that it went to South America, but also later rumors that it's still in the US somewhere.    The one currently in South America could have been it, but it'd have been repainted to match the pictures I've seen now.

C-GAAH is the now US registered Carvair here in Alaska.

I won't comment except to say I've gotten to tour the inside of that bird.   8) 
Also "Maid 'n' Japan", another of Everetts C-46's.  Haven't been in "Salmon Ella" or "Dumbo" yet.  But Bob got some cockpit time in one a couple years back.  I think it was Salmon.

Hello there, ::wave:: Gibbo_335: I have been all day long aclicking and agoogling to no avail. I give up on that jet with tail booms...you have no idea the contraptions with booms I found, but none are this little two seater. ::banghead:: ::rambo:: ::complaining:
The clickers on my compu´s board are hollow... ::rofl:: ::rofl:: ::rofl:: I also found this Name That one, that nobody will name either... ::whistle:: very unknown one!

Gotta do better than that Donyan.  Had one fly by me just last summer, up close and personal.   ::drinking::
