Larras Lee Transport Operator Ralph Chrystall transported 5 DC3's to his property over a 3 year period,  4 left from Bankstown
and one from Warnervale on the Central Coast. Permits had restrictions on what time of day these operations were to take place.
Ralph made a special cradle to lie the hulks at an angle so they could fit over the narrow bridge at Denman. 2 hulks remain at the
Bankstown Museum and one other, VH-SBL is airworthy and was flown to Larras Lee. 5 of them remain in the dry air out West and
one has been sold on to a private buyer. I spent one warm February day undoing wing attach bolts on DNF prior to it being
shifted. I followed the transporter from Warnervale to Sandy Hollow on the 24th of February 2010 and this was the last DC3 to
make the trip. Ralph is available to transport aircraft, train carriages and similar monstrocities anywhere, anytime.
