Hi
Re- Herons and gliding, I have a vague memory of hearing about one which ran out of fuel and completed a dead stick landing somewhere in Devon, possibly during the eighties.

Great pics John.

I think the 'DC6' may be a Canadair 4 Argonaut judging from the Merlin engines and the fin shape.

Definately a golden age of airliner travel IMHO!
