That’s true Ron. They will be forced to make it multi spectral with a single red star.

skylab, I never suggested the PO-2 was any sort of threat to a Corsair. I was asking someone who was actually there (Jim Tyson) for his recollections.

skylab, apparently you failed to notice my comments were a direct quote from AOPA.org which I cited at the end of the article. If the article leaves out certain facts, I suggest you contact the source of this article and enlighten them. The fact remains that Capt. Chambers made a bold decision,faced with a unique situation to make a ready deck to help Maj.Bung Ly and his family. I suppose you could say Capt. Chambers did not carry out his orders since he scuttled the aircraft in poor weather and shallower seas

What a cool shot! I have seen one once so far...flying over Notre Dame Stadium back in 2013!:-)

James:

I know that they could have used a nice easterly breeze on the way down.
Thanks for the comment.

Love the symmetrical 'rolling tornadoes' coming off the fins on all four nacelles. Lots of energy there!!

Not that bad. Don't think one of the best skydive businesses, Skydive Pennridge, minds a bit. Thanks for the extra views on this older posting that I just revisited.

Beautiful shot Daniel ! With all the new liveries and planes, got to get down there for a planefanning day.

Outstanding!!

Written on 30/07/2021 by sal derosa

@Chris Croft, next time please mention that Captain Chambers already had orders to ditch the Helos. He was aiming for both better weather and deeper ocean in which to follow those orders. Major Bung Ly only shortened the schedule. More than adequate justification.

She is such a beauty just sitting…if she were to never fly again it would be the finest static display anywhere!!

Nice, just missed seeing this landing at Oshkosh by a few hours:(

This is a real love-hate relationship. This little sweetheart is a slick efficient dream to fly, and a knuckle-busting b1tch to pull a 100-hour inspection on.

When I heard that it was approaching, I was hoping for a T & G. Instead, it made this one lone flyby. When it came by, I was OK with just the single pass, especially when I saw how low it was.

Those wings are astonishing! What modern materials science has made available continues to amaze me...

Rest In Peace :(

I appreciate the enthusiasm, Chris. But as a note, the Polikarpov PO-2 was a bi-plane that in a slight descent might make 120KPH (75MPH), armed with hand-held bombs while defended (maybe) with a 6mm to 9mm pistol was in no way a threat to a Corsair. Unless the Corsair pilot was in bed, therefore, the name Bed check Charlie. If I recall correctly only one “Bed Check Charlie” attack using PO-2s was what you could call successful. The next attempt using the PO-2, Navy Lieutenant Guy Bordelon dispatched five (Korea’s first ‘prop’ Ace) of them in an F4U-5N (target radar-equipped, hardly a fair fight).

Fortunately for most PO-2 Pilots, their most notable theater of action was West of the Black Sea roughly 5000 miles from Korea, and a decade earlier in the WWII period where Germans were invading Russian turf across Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine. Speaking of PO-2 Pilots, google "Night Witches" sometime. They were bad-ass.

If I am not mistaken, correct military name would be C-47. DC-3 is the civilian version.

Judging by the tiny wings, I'd guess they are getting some notable lift from the box as well.
