Fire protection of historic DC-3 Dakota aircraft

Wheeled CO2 extinguisher for historic DC-3 Dakota aircraft

The Dutch Dakota Association from Lelystad, founded in 1982, has had a large number of historic aircraft in its possession over the years and kept them airworthy. The Princess Amalia, PH-PBA DC-3 is the former plane of Prince Bernard and the prominent possession of DDA. Thanks to the many volunteers, every year between 100 and 150 flight hours are achieved. In order to protect this unique heirloom, Saval has supplied a wheeled CO2 extinguisher that is used during the start procedure.
