Flying the DC-4 Skymaster in South Africa

by Sam Chui

Step aboard an era when flying was an elegant affair…

Powered by four Pratt & Whitney R2000 radial piston engines, ZS-AUB is one of the very few passenger-licensed Douglas DC-4 Skymasters operating in the world today.

Join me on a flight from Waterkloof AFB to Johannesburg Rand Airport in South Africa onboard this vintage plane.

Footage include a spectacular 200 feet above ground fly pass over Waterkloof AFB and cockpit takeoff and landing footage.
