This photo sure brings back memories of the many years I spent in Papua New Guinea in the 60's and 70's when the DC-3 was the frontline aircraft of the domestic carriers. The DC-3 was the only freight link with the highlands areas before the road network was started. In the mid 60's Madang airport was the second busiest airport in the Southern Hemisphere for aircraft movements - second only to Sydney. After one busy day there were 19 DC-3's lined up on the tarmac loaded and ready for another day with the same amount of workload.
