click herea great plane in its time, sham to see it retired, often flew in them as a passenger in my younger days.
The end of an era :o((
Fortunately there are still many places in the world where the DC-3 is still flying.I flew on one in South Africa from J'burg to Kruger National Park - a wonderful experience.
Brings back memories to me too. I did my parachute course jumping from one of these things...
"I did my parachute course jumping from one of these things..."So did I about 35 years ago :0) and jumped from several since.Wonderful machine I shall miss it.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight still operates a DC3 in its C-47 disguise.click here
Fruit Bat /\0/\ That just goes to show its versatility, I did mine in 1951.
Sorry...... For "versitility" substitute "endurance"
Is it just the commercial ones that are stopped or does this affect the C47 that Woolwell commented on?
I've just looked at the link, and looking at the relatively modern appearance, find it hard to believe that it flew only 30 years after the Wright brothers first flight, and that Charles Lindbergh was involved in the design!
Totally-braindeadJust the commercial ones. Not economically viable to bring them up to modern safety standards for paying passengers.
