The Dakota Hunter

A Film by Axel Ebermann

Fire watch: Starting the engines

Hans wanted to check out some remote unpaved airstrips in
the middle of the Colombian Jungle that can only be reached by
the Dakota.

He had heard rumors, that quite a few Dakota wrecks that did
not survice the rough landing were lying untouched and forgotten
in the wilderness.

So we hustled a flight on a cargo plane – and no passengers were allowed
on the plane until the over 50 year old engines – with a lot of huffing and puffing –
had come to life with somebody standing by with a fire extinguisher.

I have to admit I entered that plane with a bit of a funny feeling that day…
