Default Clark-Airs and Chindits

Here, I assume is the same Clark-Air hard at work on LZ Broadway. The RE's that were with the Chindits are most likely overjoyed to have use of the dozer as opposed to clearing the strip by hand.

CHIMO! Derek

Default How about a little test drive video


We have a couple of these little Dozers come to our summer rally. Here is a little video shot at the 2017 rally stuck my gopro head camera on the owners head as he took it for a turn around the field for that's drivers eye view.

Cheers Phil

Just to revive this thread a bit, mine is (almost) ready now, and has been taken to some events, here it is with the Glider exposition in Oosterbeek, last September.
