It has served many owners, but it looks just as new today as it did when it first rolled out into the daylight from the Douglas production factory.

I received my ATP TYPE CERTIFICATE IN the DC-3/C-47 back in 1999 fling cargo from south Florida to the Bahomas.

In my opinion, it's one of the best planes ever made.

Beautiful Engine detailing - those radials "sound" good even if they're not running. (just better when they are... )

Hard to believe the original DC-3 began flying in 1935.

Un bel avion avec des ailes immenses...

Another beautifully captured image of one of the world's most enduring aircraft. Mahalo Gary.
