Dear DC-3 / Dakota friends,
My name is Axel Ebermann - I am a documentary filmmaker and I spent the last four years travelling the world
with the Dutch Dakota aficionado Hans Wiesman, who scours the world for derelict DC-3 parts that he donates to museums or turns into designer furniture.
And what a journey it was: Hans talked Malagasy air force commanders into selling him their ‘Dakota’ scrap yards,
argued with Thai officials why they should remove wingtips for him before they sink the planes to build artificial reefs
and lit up with joy when he found the rare forgotten storage room full of Dakota parts in the jungle of Colombia.
The result of our adventures is the feature documentary ‘The Dakota Hunter’.

All the best, I hope you enjoy the film.
