The Official Cockpit-Fest 2014 Group Flight
August 30th, 4:30 PM

Ride the Douglas R4D-6S for 45 minutes with eleven of your lucky Cockpit-Fest friends.

$150.00 per seat


Registration Deadline: August 24th.

The Douglas R4D-6S "Ready for Duty" is a WWII Submarine Hunter version of the famed DC-3.

Her records showed that she had been used as an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft, primarily for the training of crews in the use of new ASW equipment. Bureau No. 50783's Weight and Balance record gives details of an impressive array of electronic gear, and even provisions for carrying bombs! This clearly was not your regular dime-a-dozen cargo plane; this was a wolf in sheep's clothing!

The R4D-6S Bu.No. 50783 was built in October 1944, at Douglas Aircraft's Oklahoma City plant. She was one in a group of 35 C-47B-l0-DK'"s [the full USAAF designation] which were converted on the production line to the Navy's R4D-6 specification. She was accepted by the Navy on October 1944 and assigned to Naval Air Transport Squadron Three (VR-3), headquartered at the Olathe, Kansas Naval Air Station on October 25th 1944
