This is THE airplane for me. A ramp hogging, fuel slogging, oil dripping, crappy handling, feet freezing beautiful airplane.

I think in this case for Erst, the C-46 is PERSISTENCE PERSONIFIED

 

Yep, tenacity can bring its own rewards, and if Ernst is anything, it's tenacious.

I remember seeing one of these sitting on it's belly in a pasture off the Gulf freeway driving down to Galveston back in the late 50's.  It had civilian markings on it.  Probably a cargo company aircraft.  I hope they salvaged it and didn't let it sit there and rot way.  It did look deserted, A beautiful beast, and a 1/48 plastic rendition would really be nice.  But I know, that's wishful thinking.

 

Best regards

Patrick
