Below you can see the retardant hose that is fed up to the aircraft with the help of small wheeled dollies.

314 viewsAirline: Everts Air FuelType: Douglas DC-6Registration: N7780BAirport: FAICity: FairbanksState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 12, 2010Interesting... The Howard Hughes nose art image is a tribute to this aircraft. Howard had purchased this six from Douglas and it only had just over 9 flight hours! It was stored forgotten in an Opa Locka, Florida hangar in a very professionally preserved state. All the fluids were drained, windows and doors sealed, and they even fogged the interior of the fuel tanks to keep the sealants from drying and cracking. It was resurrected by Northern Air Cargo in 1973 then Everts as a fueler. What a find!

299 viewsAirline: Poly FiberType: DC-3Registration: N28AAAirport: inflightCity: NewnanState: GeorgiaCountry: USADate Taken: August 2009Scenic inflight view of Georgia out the forward window of the Gooneybird. 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.
