Look what I stumbled upon this morning, before it had a chance to depart on its last leg to Oshkosh! Yes, it’s Draco, the incredible creation by @mike_patey ! It started life as a PZL Wilga 2000, but Mike installed a @prattandwhitneyca PT-6 turboprop, huge tundra tires, and improvements all around. I salute Mike for thinking differently than everyone else. He could have restored another T-6 or L-39, but instead, he has a truly original, one-off backcountry adventure machine! Well done, Mike. It’s a work of art, and one you should be very proud of. P.S. - Mike, please restore a PZL M-15 Belphegor next. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #avgeek #aircraft #aviation #pilot #avpic #avpics #instaplane #instapilot #instaaviation #flight #flying #plane #planes #airplane #instagramaviation #aircraftrecognition #cessnateur #draco #pt6 #pt6nation #osh18 #pzlwilga #avpic #airplane #pt6 #instapilot #planes #pt6nation #flying #aviation #instaaviation #aircraft #instaplane #flight #aircraftrecognition #pzlwilga #plane #avgeek #avpics #cessnateur #osh18 #pilot #draco #instagramaviation

Another great post @cessnateur ・・・ On this date in 2015, the magnificent Dornier Do-24ATT struck submerged debris while performing a touch-and-go on Lake Wolfgangsee in Austria. The 30,800 lb (14,000 kg) amphibious aircraft was flying at 97 knots, and came to a stop in only 265 feet during the incident. No injuries were reported, and the damage was apparently limited to a relatively small hole in the fuselage. The aircraft is quite something. Originally built in 1944, it was utilized as a rescue aircraft in Spain until 1972. In 1983, it underwent an extensive restoration and conversion, in which the original three 9-cylinder radial piston engines were replaced with three Pratt & Whitney PT-6 turboprops. In addition, the wing was redesigned, and landing gear were installed to enable operations from land. Flying boats such as this tend to utilize either wingtip floats or fuselage sponsons for stability on the water to prevent the wingtips from contacting the water. The Do-24ATT, as you can see, utilizes the latter. Which, it is said, were responsible for saving the aircraft during this incident. The reasoning is that, were it equipped with wingtip floats, this violent maneuver would almost certainly have ripped at least one of them off when the wingtips dipped toward the water at unusual yaw angles. The more durable sponson design of the Do-24 was able to keep the aircraft upright while holding together under the extreme forces. The Do-24ATT apparently underwent repairs that returned it to airworthy status, but their website (do-24.com) has not been updated in quite some time, and it's unclear whether the beautiful machine has returned to the air since this incident. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#avgeek #aircraft #aviation #pilot #avpic #avpics #instaplane #instapilot #instaaviation #flight #flying #plane #planes #airplane #instagramaviation #aircraftrecognition #cessnateur #seaplane #pt6 #pt6nation @combat_learjet @aviation_things @seaplane_pilot_association #dornier #combatlearjet ____________________________________________________ Good image! 👥 ⤵ Double tap & tag your friend Love it 😉💖 W #avpic #airplane #pt6 #instapilot #dornier #planes #flying #aviation #combatlearjet #aircraft #instaaviation #instaplane #flight #aircraftrecognition #plane #avgeek #avpics #cessnateur #pilot #seaplane #pt6nation #instagramaviation

We like to get into all kinds of jobs here. Here is Rod Kotschorek performing a hot section inspection on a King Air 200, PT6A-41. He opened up the tip clearance a little bit, but otherwise, the engine is looking really healthy! #mobileair #mobileairservice #pt6 #kingair #kingairnation #be20 #welovewhatwedo #hsi #standrewsairport #hsi #kingairnation #standrewsairport #pt6 #be20 #welovewhatwedo #kingair #mobileair #mobileairservice
