DeHavilland Buffalo. Arizona. USA. NR60

The DeHavilland Buffalo is a short takeoff & landing aircraft capable of using surfaces impossible for most aircraft. After landing in the desert & unloading a huge estate car full of photo equipment, this plane carried out dozens of 'circuits and bumps'. This was repeated the following day. When time came to load the car back into the plane the wheels were up to the hubs in loose sand. The captain handed over takeoff to his first officer, as a first time t/o from such a surface. All went well.
