My favorite pic on Flightaware in the past couple months - maybe even for the year !!

Stunning !!!!
Lindo quadro.
Can anyone tell us a little about how and where this photo was taken?

For those wondering…..The backdrop view is of Mt. Rainier’s NNW face with Liberty Ridge in the center running up to Liberty Cap and the Mowich Face to the right. The higher Columbia Crest summit of Rainier is just in view to the top left of the mountain.
Thanks Mr. Nelson for that.

DC3, the Mountain, fantastic!

It says "Breitling DC-3 World tour." Anyone know the story about that?

I never tire of photos of DC-3s. When I was a boy my father (a school principal) worked summers in Laconia, NH for Northeast Airlines who flew them. I am color blind, but the photo has a very similar color scheme to Northeast. Very fond memories! Also, I have climbed Mt Rainier. Many, many thanks for posting this.

Q: How does it get any better than this?
A: It can't, son. It can't.

All over Brazil, Argentina, and Chile, years ago.

Loved these old birds. Of course, they weren't that old, then.

Classy Lady from the past. I trained on the engines for these birds in High School fell in love with radials after that

Would anyone agree this is an early American Airlines DC3 powered by Wright engines and the doors are on the starboard side. The tip off is the rounded center trim piece between the forward cockpit windows. I flew one, N400D as i recall, as co-pilot in exchange for flying a 1936 Lockheed 10A Electra as captain. We used both for selling rides to raise money for a underprivileged children camp near Greensboro, NC. The owner and DC3 captain was the remarkable late K.C. Benbow.
