Douglas C-54E Skymaster

@ Sacramento Mather Airport, Sacramento, CA

October 2013

This warbird rests after flying at the California Capital Airshow.  Derived from DC-4 civilian airliner, the Skymaster served in WWII and the Korean conflict.  This aircraft was part of a tribute to the Berlin Airlift.  This type was one of the first aircraft to carry the President of the United States and to assume the call sign Air Force One.  HDR image with Nikon D300, processing with Photomatix and iPhoto.
