My first Dakota photographs

When I started taking pictures of aircraft the era of the Dakota was actually over. But I still saw them now and then. The first Dakota I photographed was the one left, operated by the British airline Eastern Airways. The picture was taken at Rotterdam Zestienhoven Airport in the late Seventies. Another Dakota picture I took at Zestienhoven was the one of Air Atlantique on the picture below.
