A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
The Douglas DC-3 (DC Douglas Commrcial) is considered by many as the aircraft that
revolutionized commercial air travel in the 20th Century. The maiden flight of the DC-3 took place
on December 17, 1935, the 32nd anniversary of the Wright Brother's historic flight at Kitty Hawk.
Now airlines were able to be profitable without depending on U.S. Mail subsidies and passengers
could now fly transcontinental with just one re-fueling stop. There are many DC-3s still flying 75
years after their maiden flights.
Douglas C-47 Skytrain 44-76950 c/n 16534/33282 was delivered to the USAAF in 1944 and in
May 1945 was transferred to the No. 24 RAF Squadron as KN628. Field Marshal Bernard
Montgomery was appointed Military Governor of the British zone of Germany this aircraft became
his personal transport in July 1945. In 1946 Montgomery returned to England and KN628 became
a general VIP aircraft until 1948 when it was returned to Montgomery until 1954 when it was sold
to various owners eventually being scrapped in Florida.
