December 17, 1935

The Douglas Aircraft Company rolled out,
and flew the Legendary DC-3!

The DC-3 in this single event, with all its variants,
has rippled through the Aviation World for over 60 years.
Competing designers have proclaimed the demise of this valiant workhorse,
with each new aluminum show plane, but to no avail.

The DC-3/C-47/R4D/Dakota and its many other variants,
has touched the lives of people
from every country in the World, and from Pole to Pole.
The DC-3 was designed to
do the work of the world then -- and the DC-3 is still at it!

A new group of DC-3 fans are now retracing the path of history,
and the DC-3/C-47/R4D/Dakota is there to greet them,
and share a "Spirit of Aviation"
that has crossed both generational and financial barriers
to capture the heart of those that love aviation
as a way of life, and not simply a occupation!

These over 1475 web pages, which are the labor of love,
dedicated to the DC-3/C-47/R4D/Dakota,and all its variants,
and all those who admire this venerable craft.

In the Spotlight...

The spirit that lived in 1776 is abundantly present today.

Never let an opportunity pass to say, "Thank you."
To all who serve, pray for them without ceasing.

It is America. May God bless her.
