I first spied N9701F at the Santa Monica, CA airport in mid-1978, having just been hired by The Flying Tiger Line in Los Angeles. At that time it was owned and operated by Briles Wing & Helicopters. They had helicopter contracts up in Alaska and used the airplane as a mobile maintenance vessel. By removing the rotor blades, they could transport a Jet Ranger within the fuselage.

This was my first up-close sighting of a Fairchild C-82 Packet. Notably different with the twin-boom tail, and the post-military addition of a single Jet engine mounted on top-center of the fuselage.

Burnished on the left side of the fuselage, were remnants of the logo of TWA. Back in the B-707 days, TWA had owned at least two 'Packets', again serving as mobile maintenance vehicle, large enough to haul spare JT-3D engines, other parts, maintenance crews and their equipment, to service regions within Europe and Africa continents.

Fifteen years later, I had the pleasure of a re-introduction to N9701F at Hawkins and Powers Aviation, Greybull, WY. The Packet was one of a variety of older reciprocating-engine airplane types used for aerial fire-fighting that H&P used various missions. The airplane had the LARGEST supernumerary seating area I had ever seen, all located on the upper deck just aft of the pilot cockpit controls. The distance between the pilot seats were also much further than modern-day jet transports. Communication between the pilots was not enhanced with an intercom, resulting in 'shouting' requests to the 2nd pilot for power settings and checklists. I had the distinct pleasure to take training and fly her, earning an FA-82 type-rating on 27 September 1993.

Although not required for our lighter-weight flight training, we fired up the jet engine for demonstration purposes. Recalling that it was NOT powered by Jet-A, but rather the same 100-octane aviation fuel as the main engines, the jet ran some VERY hot turbine temperatures!

Following two separate incidents of wing folding, one involving a P4Y and another C-130, costs of complying with FAA mandates caused H&P to cease operations. Assets of H&P were sold to accommodate loans. N9701F was eventually acquired by folks in Hagerstown, MD.

While giving initial instruction to a new owner of an Eclipse Jet, student, I again stumbled across N9701F in November 2017 at the Hangerstown, MD airport. I doubt she is airworthy, last sighted north of the main Hangerstown terminal, where she may remain today.

Notes from my logbook include the following:

USAF Serial #45-57814; Limitations included 'Restricted to Private carriage of cargo – no cargo or passengers for hire' ; P&W 2800-CB-16 engines; Westinghouse J-34-WE-34 on top-mounted pod, with 3,250 pounds of thrust; Basic Operating Weight 34,000 pounds; Gross Weight 54,000 pounds with the jet operating; Gross Weight 47,000 pounds without the jet operating; Max. Landing weight 54,000 pounds; Vmc 91; V2 109; Climb 118; Vlo 113; Vle 130; Vse 105; Vb 140-160; Approach 110; Boundary 100; TWA Max. crosswind component 26 knots.

Its a 400ER Qantas is the only airline to have the extended range 747's I think they had 4 and they only flew the Melbourne to LAX route.

Awesome photo! Thanks. Surprisingly the mains are only about 20' AGL, and appears to not even be over the runway yet. Given the length of the aircraft and deck angle, I'd be more than a little nervous at that point if I were PIC. Guess that's why those captains get paid the big bucks. Just seems low to me.

EDDF = Frankfort, so it's probably Lufthansa Cargo. The contrails are coming off the inboard vortex generators on either side of engines 1 and 3. Look closely at the 10:30 and 1:30 positions on the nacelle.

SOCATA (Morane Saulnier) MS893E GT Rallye 180hp, C/N 12602. Couldn't find the manufacturing date at the moment but she sure is an old lady. And, yes, it's a glider tug, tugging as shown by the stretched out cable. A very traditional role in which she has been (is) widely used, as well as in-flight school. The leading edge slats are 100% automatic (spring-loaded), making her quite hard (though not impossible) to stall. She is the first aircraft I have ever flown (the 100hp variant). That was long ago, almost in a former life. :)

If that is the twice a-day flight from Dulles to Frankfurt, she will be over my backyard in two miles. A twice a day thrilling sight accompanied by the sound and feel of true power.

Nice picture but this airplane is actually a 185 on 3430 floats.

Even as a kid who built models in the 1960's, these things always looked like they severely struggled to stay aloft. So slow they seemed to fly backwards.... Some may argue

I flew over Chad, Africa in the very late 60's, between "Fort Lamy" (Ndjamena) and the Tibesti in one of the French Military Noratlas. I remember we had to go one by one to the toilet at the very end of the tale, the last 10ft of the plane was lightly built to gain weight. In the cockpit it was a glass bubble on the top to navigate with the stars in case of instrument failure. Very emblematic plane of this period of time. Another plane very strange, the Breguet Deux Ponts, double deck Breguet, in service between Algiers and Paris in the 50's.

Nice Shot! I have a picture of the exact same place, I took it yesterday. The GLF6 was on short final to WSSS.

What an incredible shot!

Written on 2019年10月18日 by Michael Stansfield

The original movie "Flight of the Phoenix" used a Fairchild C-82 Packet, the remake used a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar. Similar to a Noratlas in that they were twin-boomed military transports. I used to see C-119's and Noratlases frequently fly over my house in the 1960's
