Remarks: The Basler BT-67 is conversion package for DC-3 aircraft, which consist in several structural upgrades as well as avionics and engine replacement with the P&W PT6. This comes to show how robust and versatile the DC-3 platform was. This unit was in Bremerhaven, even if it is used for polar missions on behalf of the AWI.
Remarks: Best catch of the day. A Basler BT-67 marked "Polar 6" with tail markings "AWI" which stands for Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. Arriving at Canada Customs. Registration is new to database.
