A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
The Douglas DC-3 (DC Douglas Commercial) 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 Brothers 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-47A-1-DK was delivered to the USAAF on the 9th of November 1943 with the serial 42-
92264 and supplied to the RAAF in January 1944 as A65-28 VHCUA with the No. 35 Squadron
and No. 33 Squadron in 1945. In August 1947 the aircraft was sold to Australian National Airways
Pty Ltd and entered service as VH-INC the next month. In 1957 it was acquired by Ansett-ANA
then in 1961 Airlines of N.S.W., occasionally used by Queensland Airlines. It was withdrawn from
service in 1966 and scrapped in 1969.
