SP-LAD  Lisunov LI-2T                                    (c/n  18422705)


                                         When I wrote to airline companies in the late 1940s requesting their history and photographs of their
                                         aircraft, I naturally never received replies from those airlines behind the Iron Curtain.  They certainly
                                         weren't about to send anything gratis to a proletarian, capatalistic Air Training Corps cadet such as
                                         myself.  Most of my post WW II LOT images came, therefore, from Jennifer Gradidge's collection. .
                                         The above rather poor shot of a LI-2 is one of them.   Incredibly, Lisunov built over 6000 of these
                                         DC-3s under licence from Douglas.
