Video Douglas C-47B Dakota Belgian Air Force at Kamembe (Rwanda)
Video Douglas C-47B Dakota Belgian Air Force at Kamembe (Rwanda) :



 

Rare video of Kamembe Airport, filmed in 1954. In this video, we see some planes, most of them are Douglas DC-3s, including one, registered K31 OT-CNR.

The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner. Its cruise speed (207 mph or 333 km/h) and range (1,500 mi or 2,400 km) revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting effect on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made.



The major military version, of which more than 10,000 were produced, was designated the C-47 Skytrain in the USA and the Dakota in the UK. Many DC-3s and converted C-47s are still in use around the world. (Wikipedia)

 

The DC3 seen on this video was used by the Belgian Air Force. It was delivered new to the US Air Force, on 14 March 1945. 2 Days later it was transfered to the Royal Air Force (UK). It was sold to the Belgian Air Force, in 1950. It was used for Aerial Photography, then for operations in Congo, in 1950s. It was retired from Air Force and scrapped in 1972. http://www.wingsovereurope.com/dc-3_wreck.html

The first Dreamliner landed in Rwanda, on 11 September 2012. Currently, Ethiopian Airlines is the alone airline to serve Kigali, with the Dreamliner. However,  KLM could be the 2nd airline. It's too early to know it.
