Shot in 1990, this is one of only two TT-3's manufactured! Originally built as a Douglas C-53 in 1942 for the USAF as 41-20133. This unique aircraft was later fitted with two 1,740 hp Rolls-Royce Dart Mk.510's. After that (as seen here) she was fitted with three Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6's with five bladed Hartzell propellers. This aircraft was used for operations at the North Pole where it routinely operated from an ice strip at Station Nord, one of the northern most airfields on the planet where temperatures were routinely 40 degrees below zero. It was also leased at one point to the US Navy serving in Fort Barrow, Alaska and was fitted with skis. It even served in Antartica, 700 miles from the South Pole.
