                                     This excellent shot of a DHY DC-3 came from the Jerry Elmas collection.   Jerry has a large
                                     selection of photos of TC- registered  aircraft and should any viewer have special requirements
                                     please contact me and I'll put you in touch with him.    TC-ABA was a 1942 DC-3 built to a
                                     United Air Lines order, (was to have been NC33692) but this delivery was thwarted by WW II
                                     and the aircraft passed immediately to the USAAF as a C-53C-DO (43-2027) .  When civilianized
                                     in 1946 it went to Delvet Hava Yollari (THY - Turkish Airlines).   When retired by THY it went to
                                     the Turkish Air Force as ETI-06, later 6006.
