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 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-DL 42-32832 was delivered to the USAAF on February 11, 1943 and assigned to
the 53rd Troop Carrier Squadron. On May 4, 1943 42-32832 was one of 13 C-47s ordered to be
ferried across the Atlantic Ocean to North Africa. After arriving in North Africa Lt. Donald King
became the pilot of this aircraft for the duration of WWII. 42-32832 made paratroop drops, glider
missions, flown supplies in and wounded out, it was also involved in D-Day drops and returned to
the U.S. in July 1945.
