Taken at the American Airlines air museum near Dallas. This is an old propeller driven passenger plane from the 40s. Canon 20D, EFs 10-22 lens.

It is hard to tell from that first shot but is that a DC-3? It looks like it from the front. A DC-3 is the first airplane I ever rode in.

These are nice shots but I would like to see a more oblique view in both cases so as to get some perspective on size and shape of the aircraft.

Vanessa, you completely missed it in the first shot. That tape by the plaque is definitely red!
