I got a chance to video the takeoff and shot kodachrome slides of the landing. This kodachrome slide is scanned here with all four engines warming up. Special thanks to Woody allowing me free reign to the taxi and runway.

The downside is the difficulty to find Avgas and the maintenance labor cost which is considered at 12 hours per each flight hour. Spare parts could also be a problem but they estimate they will have enough in stock to keep the last DC-6 flying until 2015.

You can see the red fuel caps on the inboard wing section. Also not easily seen is the landing light panel near center of this photo. This panel prevents the landing light from shining into the crews eyes when they look back to see. Another recent addition to a few propliners is the placement of a convex mirror on the panel to allow the pilot to see any evidence of an increasing engine or exhaust stack fire.
