  • The DHC-2 Beaver.

    Well. I open this topic due to the aircraft, the deHavilland Canada DHC-2,
    and rather not concerning its nickname 'Flyin Beaver', which in German is something like................. 'Fliegender Biber'.

    A flying animal as an image for an aircraft, that happens quite often. Kranich, Condor, .. Fliegender Biber. Probably, this nickname is of native American ('Indian') origin, I don't know.

    Back on topic. As I mentioned some weeks ago, if you own two simulator licenses, the p3dv4.5 license and the fsx license, you can do one thing which I did.

    You can fly the Beaver also in p3d, which then looks like this. From the Port of Rijeka, Croatia, to Venice, Italy.
    With a little help from Vienna, concerning the weather report.

    PS: After the landing in Venice, I thought, what if this were a B314 Clipper Flying boat, moving across the sky at alt 11,000 ..
    Today, still a dream, as such a boat is not really cheap.
    The German long haul is alive, since more than 60 years.
    The Gold Member in the 747 club, 50 years since the first LH 747.
    And constantly advanced, 744 and 748 /w upper and lower EICAS.
    This is Lohausen International airport speaking, echo delta delta lima.
